What is it about Ithaca that we’ve had to travel far and wide to find it?
Better may be, what is it about us that have had to travel far and wide to find Ithaca?
An Ocean and four Seas apart from the original Ithaca, home of Odysseus, lies another – a city in the Finger Lakes region of New York.
It was only the first stop of a week-long trip to Cayuga Lake, Buffalo, Niagara Falls, around Lake Ontario to Gananoque and the Thousand Islands – with a touch of Ottawa.
So here we were, one night in October. We had found Ithaca. Now all we had to do was explore it.
This is downtown, at 8 p.m. on a Monday.
