Denver Explodes

February 28th, 2019 § 0 comments

HG/BSK are in Denver for a whirlwind one day, two-night visit. Alas, no time to see dear friends like the Craggs and others. Gentle, quirky Denver, a city that had “cowtown” charm, is no more. Explosive growth. Scores and scores of glass office towers. Thousand of apartments, sprawling residential developments. Traffic is a nightmare. Bumper to bumper everywhere. No shortcuts. Maddening. Stayed in a very pleasant new hotel, Fairfield Inn, in the Lakewood suburb. Big, comfortable beds. Comfy pillows and warm comforters. Very quiet. Very clean.Nice indoor pool and whirlpool with strong jets. Modest prices. In addition to the usual Holy Bible, the bedside drawer contained The Book of Mormon. HG searched in vain for a Koran and a Hebrew book of prayer. Ecumenical failure.
