Matt and I have finished operation 1: pack up and move out of Chicago apartment. We are now on operation 2: play badminton and plan route for our drive to California. Our first stop will be Kansas City. I've never been but I'm looking forward to a night in "The Paris of the Plains". Why? Firstly, ChefBurger! But also, and given our recent obsession with badminton, I want to see The Shuttlecock installation at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in downtown KC. Shuttlecocks was designed by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen and installed in 1994. I don't know if we'll get there in time to actually walk around and touch the sculptures, but hopefully we can get a glance at them from the car, they are after all the world's largest shuttlecocks. Have a great weekend!
