What we did on our summer vacation: great idea for articles, Ed! Finally the rains have stopped and we just had to get out of town and
headed to Vermont for what became a Town & Country Tour. The small cities are perfect places to get new ideas and enjoy the beautiful urbanism. Here's some town: Beautiful downtown Montpelier with four bookstores within two blocks, great beer and an exquisite capitol. A game of Frisbee was being played in the front lawn of the state capitol. That's good design! And here's some country.
