Hartford, Connecticut - Part Two

The Pond House CafeBoth Alejandra and i have a love affair with reading, and one of our favorite authors is Mark Twain. He was the author of such memorable books like "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", "The Adventure of Tom Sawyer", "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court", and many more writings. So once I found thru a search that he had a house in Hartford and was also a museum on his name. I chalked it down into the paper as a place to go. Saw the pictures of the house and it has an outdoorsy kinda look, which is perfect cause Alejandra and i love nature.

Since we love the outdoor and nice buildings, there was a castle that is a bit of a drive south which is the Gillette Castle State Park. One of the nicest things about this place is that it has a ferry that goes around the river from one side to the next, and as per the website and the reviews, the vistas are super nice! Plus it has that "old" look, which adds to the uniqueness of the surroundings.

I found also a nice place that is going to be my "surprise" to Ms. Hotness Alejandra. It is called Pond House Cafe. Set in a landscape with beautiful gardens and variety of flowers and trees, with that as view, the cafe has a nice menu, so I am thrill and know that we both going to have a very romantic time.

At night, I found a couple of places. we love music, so i am going to take her to The Webster which is an underground concert hall, that has a very "intimate" feel but also keeping its "hard rock live" vibe. And to eat, I read reviews of incredibly nice restaurants, and all agree that SALUTE (which is Italian for Cheers) is one of the best. went to their website and check the menu and my mouth watered with those awesome appetizers and entree!

I have a pretty good idea how the itinerary will be, and can’t wait to have the treat of my life by showing Alejandra around Hartford. However, can’t wait to get over with the "Meeting the familia", I tell you, it is the only thing that is getting me the heavey-Jeeves! But all for the lady and all for love!
