our day 12 on rt 66 photos (still no captions, GO FIGURE) most everything is either 1920s or 40s, old gas/motels/buildings -

what your seeing in these photos is the beginnings of america as we know it today, these buildings and the people who built them were the ones who built america, it was through their hard labor we have what we have today - in today's world it would never happen, our young kids would NEVER endure the hardships these people had to do, much like the pioneers of the west. the shame of it all, you can also see from our photos, the young are letting it die. instead of keeping the old, they go to college, play sports or watch it on tv/text message/ipods/iphones/pc's, move and work at starbucks in some big city... yeah, i know, who am i????
