Trip to Charleston, NC

I am a little behind on my postings...This one is about our trip to Charleston, NC in December, 2008. The city was lovely, full of charm and history. We really enjoyed walking up and down the streets, checking out old biuldings. The streets were full of old trees with its characteristic hanging moss, which gives the whole city an aura of nostalgia and melancholy...The fact that it is a harbour city adds to its charisma. Views of the water that surrounds it are everywhere, making the city feel open and airy. The old "rambla" along the ocean is very romantic and full of life, with children and people of all ages walking all along. We had a great time and hope to be back sometime soon. The weather was amazing! warm and delicious...We are definitely falling for the south!...there is a different rythm here...slower, more human...The trip overall was very inspiring and helped sediment some of the ideas I am incubating for my new piece...
