I went for a walk around downtown Milwaukee today. I've been working on my workshop examples, having arrived a day early because of my typical travel karma. I'm enjoying the time to go over the material again, but the stomach demands, so the rest of me complies and off for a walk I went.
For the parts I saw, I can say that Milwaukee is a lovely city. I had a great conversation with my driver last night (at midnight, no less), and with several other people here, so the people are Midwestern friendly as I'd expect them to be.
What I find most interesting in a delightful way is ALL THE INDIANA LIMESTONE.

Of course, there's the flip side of the limestone:
Mixed poorly, it makes crappy cement.
