The centre of Saint Louis is very harmonious. I stayed ther for five days, but most of them... working. What a pity!

I arrived at Saint Louis at night, among a rather intense traffic, and my first impressions in the morning were: marvellous.
After a calm photo tour at sunrise the second impression was: where is everybody?
Downtown seemed a beautiful but almost dead town, nothing like the lively place I was expecting.
Travelling further west, things became different, correcting the wrong initial idea.

But I was installed in downtown, and coming back I returned to the sensation of cold emptiness.
Until… the Cardinals.
Suddenly lots of people dressing red shirts converged to Bush stadium, and the neighbourhoods became a red town. For three successive days, baseball gave life to town. I almost decided to join the crowds and enter the stadium, but knowing nothing about that strange game, and aware of jet-lag that could make me fall asleep, I decided not to risk.
So… what did I keep from town? Well, I can’t summarise it. Maybe my tips give you an idea.

    Your cover comment about the people are not downtown is as true when I lived there until 1993. There are a lot of nice sties to tour, and you made good comments and pictures. We go there this tomorrow for one week.

    I enjoyed reading your thoughts about St. Louis. There really are some good restaurants there, sorry you missed them. Having to pay for the use of a ladder, is very unfriendly!
