May 8, 2015. Chapel Hill, North Carolina.<br />

 Outsiders tend to lump Chapel Hill with nearby Durham, but the more sensible pairing is with Carrboro, the adjacent town that was once a mere offshoot known as West End. Even today the transition from Chapel Hill, anchored by North Carolina'’s flagship public university, into downtown Carrboro is virtually seamless.
