Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland

A new day in our road trip through the United States, and road day with a weather alternating sun and clouds.

On our route from Chicago, we went over some bridge, I took one of those Coca Cola or Dr. Pepper of flavors to mislead the kilometers a bit, and we arrived in Cleveland around 15.15 hours after having eaten a sandwich en route.

Cleveland, located on the southern shore of Lake Erie, is the second largest city in the state of Ohio, after Cincinnati.

Recent investments have provided the city with various tourist attractions in the center, such as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the area of ​​historic theaters recovered fromPlayhouse Square Center or the Progressive Field baseball stadium.

We are in the land of Thomas Edison or the Wright brothers, known worldwide for being the first to fly in an airplane. And also the state of Ohio is the land of Neil Armstrong, the first person to step on the moon, recently deceased.

We went straight to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum) where, oh gods !! there was a special exhibition dedicated to Bruce Springsteen. Fantastic coincidence! For a moment I thought that of God exists! and it's good too! It immediately happened to me.

We toured the entire museum watching on television the stories of the different artists presented there. We could also see a wide collection of their costumes, gold records, books, photos, and we listened to songs and recorded interviews, etc.

We also visited the exhibition dedicated specifically to boss. At times we relive a part of the music that is part of our subconscious, and that only with a few notes moves us to other times, another era, another life.

The truth is that the museum and the theme do not give much more, and satisfied, but also a bit disappointed, we went through the museum shop and went for a walk around its surroundings as well as those of the Cleveland Browns football stadium.

As usual, we also took a walk along the shore of Lake Erie, which is part of the Great Lakes, although it is further south than the others and is also part of the waterway that runs through them ... Of its dimensions you it serves the fact that it has an area almost similar to that of Catalonia.

Already with the car we went around the city center, and then we went directly to the hotel located in a residential area of ​​houses, with some large mansions.
