Charlotte, North Carolina: Part 2











I wish my trip to North Carolina could have lasted longer. Like I said, I am completly in love with that place. Charlotte seemed like the most perfect mixture of Uptown and Downtown that I have ever seen. I got the chance to visit two malls while I was there, both of them I loved, South Park and Concord Mills Mall. South Park was the most gorgeous mall I have ever seen, it had every high end store you could think of from Guess to Urban Outfitters, to Nordstrom to Aldo. I loved it, but unfortunantly it was out of my price range. We also went to Concord Mills Mall right outside of Charlotte and it was HUGE. Biggest mall I have ever been to.

I went to the campus of the school I was accepted to on Friday afternoon and it was in a very uptown neighborhood and beautiful. It was also in an incredibly safe part of town, which is always good. The school had this large statue thing in the front, where we took tons of pictures. We stayed at a motel, the Red Roof Inn on Queens Street. It was small but decent. We were originally supposed to stay at a Motel 6 but it was in a really bad part of town and it was, well, disgusting. When we were at Concord Mills Mall I found a frozen yogurt place. I was so happy about that. Nowhere around here has frozen yogurt, at all, let alone a nice frozen yogurt place where they have dozens of toppings to choose from! I got dulce de leche flavored with yogurt chips, chocolate chips and graham cracker crumbs. It was so delicious, I'm craving for more but there's nowhere to go here! I really miss North Carolina, but I'm starting to think I'll be back in August. Maybe? :)
