Well, part 1 of our desert trip is arranged. We're booked into El Mirasol Villas in Palm Springs for at least two nights, possibly several more. It all depends on what we feel like doing. From there we could always head toward the Grand Canyon, or to Las Vegas, or to other places that I'll find out are too distant. My geographic sense of the Southwest is rather vague - California's the bit on the left, then there's blocky bits along the bottom - Arizona, New Mexico. We might be able to drive into those states, but we're keeping it vague right now. If two whole weeks in Palm Springs seems like the thing to do, we'll do it. If we get our kicks on Route 66, so be it. I can be like the fictional American tourist in Australia who thinks they can rent a car and get from Sydney to Perth in a day. At least in America there's the occasional strip mall to look at. Great Wal*Marts of the high desert. Educational.|
I'm now closing in on 30 pounds overweight. Yay me.
