Chocolate? Are you there? It's me, Kate.
Here I am in corn land -- Iowa and Minnesota. Got to ride on the hay baler. Stayed in a log cabin containing 8,006 knot holes and 27 items made out of antlers. Despite all the advantages, you can't find a decent piece of chocolate in these parts to save your life. And by that I mean that the highest cocoa content in the land is 55%. I brought some along, but miscalculated horribly.
Note to self: You need more chocolate when you're away from home, dummy, not less.
