My summer transhumance brought me to the sweet town of Chapel Hill in North Carolina. Chapel Hill is the birth city of the University of North Carolina (UNC) and a nice light blue color is visible across the city, from some street plates, to fire trucks, busses, and, of course, a bunch of students wearing this specific blue, the Carolina blue.

At first, navigating in this new (for me) city was a bit difficult and I relied blindly (too much) on my GPS and not enough on my brain. After a couple of weeks, I started finding my way out and finally draw this map with a bunch of Sharpies.

You’ll spot the very nice library of Chapel Hill, the Y (the joint YMCA for Chapel Hill and Carrboro).

I have not detailed the mall area, around Estes, but this is where you will find a few supermarkets (Whole Food, Harris Teeter, Trader Joe’s, and Food Lion), some specialty shops (ABC, Staples, …).

I did not put the airport, but I do not use my Gulfstream that much anymore.

Of course, feel free to comment or suggest additions. I wanted to keep it simple, ads free, and easy to understand. Hopefully it is not too wrong.

You can also download the PDF of the map if you prefer.
