Look, it's a shiny new map! And even with two more US states I've visited:
I'm fed up with the posting about the urinal mat being the most recent entry here, so let me post something new. I finally finished editing the photos from our January vacation through California, Arizona and Utah.
We checked out Tuesday morning, went to Fry's and then to the Hotel Bijou in San Francisco again. Spent some time at Barnes & Nobles and had dinner at Lori's Diner. More cable car riding and shopping on Wednesday. The choice in DVDs (or Bluray disks) even got smaller, and apparently nobody sells any CDs except new releases and best-of albums anymore...
First of all, the Fairmont hotel is great. The staff is friendly and competent, the rooms are nice and well maintained, only the light in the lobby and conference center could be a bit brighter. The bar is quite expensive, unfortunately, but hey, I was on vacation. And except for their Manhattan the cocktails are excellent.
I know, it's been a while, but so much has been going on in the meantime that I just didn't have the time to update LJ.
I didn't find the time sorting pictures earlier. Here's a small collection
I'm going to add added to the individual journal entries later.
I woke up on a murder of crows walking on the roof of the motorhome. And did I mention last night's coyote? We saw two very tame roadrunners at the visitor center. One even tried to get into our RV...
It's always interesting to observe the reactions of people who come to Las Vegas for the first time... We were at the Venetian and Forum malls, the fountains of the Bellagio, briefly went to the Coyote Ugly (a silly, funny place... Just too loud for me), ate an awful chili hotdog, and took the bus back to the campground.
