Yesterday Captain took me to Kansas City for a chance to get away and take things easy. My medication for thyroid was switched in December and again in January, and needless to say, I wasn't feeling the best for many weeks. We stayed overnight at the Raphael Hotel, an antique French hotel on the Plaza (now part of Marriott properties). We had dinner at Lidia's (for the first time). I really liked their Trio of Pasta du Jour--even the homemade pear ravioli was good. Captain had the Osso Bucco (he is very predictable). Today we enjoyed a FULL breakfast at the Raphael, complete with Eggs Benedict and Paris tea and a newspaper. Such rare treats for me. Then we strolled around inside the Nelson Art Gallery all afternoon.
