The pursuit of travel and baseball took me down to Montgomery, Alabama for a day, to take in some local sights, and eventually watch some baseball. Compared to Birmingham from just a week ago, I have to say that I liked Montgomery more. Ironically, a lot of it has to do with the historic feel of the area, and walking around what I suppose was a major home of the Confederacy.
The first White House of the Confederacy is what’s pictured above, and it’s kind of interesting to think that I never heard of such a structure even existing in contemporary school, despite the fact that Virginia too was a “southern state.”
As much as I thought I would be looked at with a strange eye for being a Chinaman in Montgomery, Alabama, I was pleasantly surprised to have not really run into such incident. Well, not openly. Then again, being a Sunday afternoon, pretty much the entire city was deserted, except for the sparse church-goers and baseball enthusiasts at the park. I’ll save the park opinions for when I eventually update the baseball site, but as for the rest of the pictures, beyond the jump.
