Virginia days (15): Carytown

My BFF’s husband, Mr. M drove me to downtown Richmond. He is a wonderful guide! Our first destination was Carytown. We walked along W Cary Street. There are unique businesses on the street, and their facades are colorful and amusing. We dropped by some specialty shops. We found a funny doll in a gift shop, and our favorite chocolates from Europe in a chocolate shop, which was full of mouth-watering smells. We visited a fair trade shop, too.

I fully enjoyed exploring the charming neighborhood. It was a fabulous place to get to know old and contemporary American cultures.
