Raja and friend went home this morning, leaving the apartment very quiet. We had a wonderful couple of days, the only sad thing being they should have stayed longer. They didn’t arrive until late Tuesday. On Wednesday we drove around a gray Pittsburgh to admire some of the wonderful homes in Shadyside and Squirrel Hill. Also drove through Chatham, now University, another beautiful area. From there we viewed the Pitt-CMU campuses and had lunch at Orchids, my favorite Indian, vegetarian place on Centre Ave.
Raja wants to paint murals like this on her back porch.

Thursday was Frick day. We began with a long walk in Frick Park, again one of my favorite places. Arriving back at the Art and Historical Center we decided we were very hungry. The nice people at the Cafe let us sit down early; we didn’t have to wait for our 1 pm reservation. After a great lunch we toured Clayton, the Frick family mansion.
Another idea for Raja’s back porch.
We finished our day at the movies: La Vie en Rose, and custard at Rita’s.
