As most of you know….The Captain and I are from the Kansas City area, via too many states to mention at this time, because I want to talk about Kansas City.
Yesterday, I received a video from a friend which is titled “Paris of the Plains”, by Tim Lair….which led me to another time lapse video titled “Kansas City Lights”, by Dan Wood.
Both videos are amazing.
These two gentlemen have gone to great lengths to make these time lapse videos, which took over a year in the making.
Dan Wood released his time lapse video late last year, while Tim Lair released his time lapse video just a few days ago.
If any of my readers are from Kansas City, you will recognize almost every landmark…..if you are not from Kansas City, I am sure you will want to visit there some day if you have never been.
I do love Kansas City…we lived there a long time and we have many friends there….
However, those of you who have followed this Blog for the last couple years will know that my creaky bones just can not take the cold, cold winters.
Too much snow and ice and wind…which is why we reside in Florida.
But having said that…it doesn’t take away from the beauty of the midwest and all the history there.
You will monuments to Lewis and Clark and you will see the famous “Plaza” lit up like you have never seen it before.
Please take a few moments and look at the city that has many, if not more… fountains than Rome.
Kinda ironic that we moved from fountains to canals.
Our little city in Florida has over 400 miles of canals….yep! more than anywhere else in the world. 🙂
Check out the city dubbed “Paris of the Plains” !
I hope you enjoy the videos….they are too cool!;)

Thanks for the nice write-up Kari! I’m glad you like them!
You really did a very nice job Dan and I know how time consuming it must have been…I am in Florida now but it does make one yearn for KC. 😉
Thanks for stopping by my Blog!
Yes, to be leading by 17 and then to lose it in the second half is hard to swallow….but there is still the Dance….and as Bill Self said today, we are recharging for the Dance.
I believe in these young Jayhawks!
Thanks for stopping by Sandy….
Rock Chalk Jayhawk!
It was a shocker to lose when they’d had a 17 point lead in the first half. I felt bad for the boys. I thought Ellis looked tired and he had that bad ankle. The other boys by-passed him a lot.
Iowa State came back in the 2nd half and that’s what KU usually does then. I’ll be cheering for them all the way anyway. Go Jayhawks!
I love Kansas City, too, Kari. I remember eating many days at the Town Topic. There were times when I went to Nelson-Atkins Museum every day when I was younger. There is so much to do in Kansas City.
So True Sandy…I always thought it was really different to have two Town Topics just about a block from each other…..Yes, Kansas City is a great city.
thanks for stopping by my friend.
You’re welcome, Kari! I love your blog, but don’t always have time to stop by.
gotta beat Iowa State tonight….getting ready for the game. 🙂
I was watching, Kari, but sadly they lost. It was close though.
