Two Sides

The downtown area of St Charles, Missouri is strictly divided in two halves. In the first, families buy artisanal soap and $40 baby outfits, and then take their kids to drink homemade lemonade with huge local cookies in the bourgeois quiet of stylized local shoppes. 

In the second, rowdy people stumble from one bar to another, hoping to meet somebody to pair off and eventually go buy soap and cookies in the bourgeois part of the town.

    1. Very much so. I’ve never seen an area that works as hard to have a thriving local economy. They made a vibrant tourist attraction out of pretty much nothing. The famous log church everybody travels to see is from 2003. It’s “restored” in the sense of being rebuilt completely.
