Yup, you read correctly, the Cooksister is currently the Tortillasister! We are here in sunny Mexico for a friend’s wedding and we have been having a total ball since I last posted from San Diego.
Left San Diego in our adorable little convertible Chrysler PT Cruiser and drove to Las Vegas – what a mad, mad place. But absolutely addictive all the same. I had difficulty visualising all the hotels I’d read about recreating famous landmarks from around the world, but then you get there and it all becomes clear. My favourite exterior has to be New York, New York but for style and class the Bellagio wins hands down. And those fountains… I could watch them all day. We also might have slipped off to a little chapel to do the Vegas thing and renew our vows… and Sally might have been there to join in all the fun, but you’ll have to wait till I get back for a detailed report…
After Vegas it was off to the Grand Canyon via the Hoover Dam. Never expected the dam to be so exuberantly Art Deco! And the canyon exceeded my expectations by about a hundredfold. That was followed by a long drive to Phoenix to catch a flight to El Paso where we spent a night in The Biggest Hotel Room in Texas (I kid you not) and the next morning we took a bus down to Chihuahua where we are staying for a few days. Mexico is amazing! Hot sunny weather, friendly people, cheap stuff to buy, great food… what could go wrong?! Tonight is a rehearsal dinner for our friends’ wedding and tomorrow is the Big Day.
I’ve taken about a million photos and eaten a ton of really interesting stuff, but you’ll just have to wait till I’m back in London next week to hear about it – sorry! 🙂
