Raleigh in the USA

So it’s a long story as to how we ended up having a couple of weeks in the USA that we hadn’t initially planned when we were first organising our trip. But here we are, and we get a chance to see one of our favourite bands of late – Mandolin Orange. Hurrah! Raleigh seems like a lovely town, with an excellent cultural institution and venue, the North Carolina Museum of Art. We also enjoyed visiting the Mordecai Historical Park, home to Raleigh’s oldest building and various other relocated 19C buildings.
