A Visit to Sprint, Overland Park, Kansas City, Missouri, US - 16th January 2005

The final leg of this US trip takes Nosher over to Kansas City, which is in Kansas or Missouri depending on which bit you're in, to see some people at Sprint, the US mobile network operator. Whilst San Diego was around 20°C, Kansas is more like -10°C, so there's a bit of a change in climate. Whilst there, Nosher hires a car for a day to drive into the outskirts of Kansas City itself, but there was also some walking around the local Overland Park area, which is harder that it sounds as the roads aren't really made for crossing by humans
