This post will feature a little commentary about our trip and tour through Pittsburg, PA. I’ll also add a photo gallery to show some of what we saw. If some of the photos look odd, it is because we did a lot of the tour from the bus, so there may be reflections and other artifacts appearing here and there.
Pittsburg is an interesting place. I’d say that it has become a dichotomy of sorts, due to the prevailing cultural / political environment. On one hand, the city is rich with American history and heritage that was built on the fundamental Christian values held by our fore-fathers. On the other hand, there seems to be a determination to present the city as a liberal, homosexual eastern seaboard haven. It truly is a quandary and a crying shame! Beyond the strangeness that lurked here and there, the history was impressive. It was awesome to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, among other sites. Even seeing the “Rocky” statue up close and personal was a real treat.
In this second bus trip post, I’d like to acknowledge the wonderful group with whom we traveled. Most were EBC members, but a couple were visiting friends of members. Our tour leader, Dan Morris, did a great job of keeping things moving along and keeping those long bus rides entertaining with bus Bingo, Christian comedy DVDs, and even a somewhat bus-friendly version of Family Feud. This was my first time to be around Dan and I found him to be steady, encouraging, and a natural leader.
Now, I hope you enjoy the photos below. Thanks for taking time to review this little post on the wide wide web of things!
