However, I also remember how exciting it all was – the noises, the broadway lights and especially the sparkly silver shoes my parents bought me. I loved those shoes! The first time I went on a bus trip was one my mom organized for the high school kids when I was 9...

You may ask where can I find this Utopia?  That is simple enough –   drive north on route 79 and...
