I spent the night with Matt last night in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He's a student at the local college and lives in a house with two roommates. He took me on a driving tour of East Grand Rapids (where "American Pie" was filmed - got to see Yesterdog, their local hangout in the movie) and Grand Rapids itself.
Matt: "We should go to the fish ladder."
Me: "What is that, like a brewpub?"
Matt: "No, it's a ladder in the river that helps the fish swim upstream."
We never did find it, though.
Afterwards I met his friends and we did what college students do best: we drank. Unfortunately I didn't have the presence of mind, shall we say, to get a picture of Matt himself, but at least I got a shot of his friends upon returning from the bar where we did flaming Dr. Peppers.
It was most likely my last couchsurfing experience of this trip. Really going to miss it.
