We’ve been running for the past, oh, month; and it’s resulted in blogs getting a little behind. Even so, there are stories that must be told, and the first is of the underground.
We had heard back in February that there was a tunnel that ran under Oklahoma City. It was since discussed every Sunday when we were downtown at church–Where is the tunnel? How do you get in it? Can we go? When? And the glorious day came the Thursday before we left Oklahoma City: we toured the tunnel.
I was pretty scared it was going to be a let down. It was cold and took a good half hour of walking to find the entrance. It was also after work hours, so the businesses underground were closed. It was also a tunnel intended for businessmen to get from one office building to another, not necessarily for entertainment.
That said, we loved it! It was surprisingly fun to explore. Each portion of the tunnel had a color theme that included colored lights and decor. We even enjoyed some fun scaring each other around corners, until we got in trouble for yelling! (Apparently, elderly people occasionally use the tunnels and could be frightened by unexplained yelling. Perhaps, but I was skeptical as I considered the mere two patrons, both middle-aged businessmen, we passed during our hours underground.) Aren’t they great? We miss them like crazy.
