Walking up to visit the state capitol, I found these interesting tree branches next to a house on a hill.

Apartment or condo? How old is this building?

After some heavy climbing, here I was.

He frequently received dignitaries from other countries. During their visits gifts were exchanged. Gifts received by the governor would be displayed in his cabinets. He had an entire display cabinet of Chinese gifts.

Building right across the capital looked eminent.

It was a tourism office, advertising many fun events and tours around the area.

Two “international” bronze bulls in front of the office. May they bring luck.

To make up the missing window by a “window” seat, god gave me two windows on my way back.
