Sadie included me in the State Department blog round-up which brought a lot of new visitors to my site, so welcome to all of you!
I spent the long weekend in Tucson and met up with one of my friends from A-100 who is posted at a different consulate in Mexico. We stayed at a nice hotel, ate some good food, shopped a lot, and drove up to Summerhaven on Mount Lemmon.
Mount Lemmon is a mountain in the Santa Catalina mountains outside of Tucson and Summerhaven is a small town near the top of the mountain. It’s a beautiful drive up to Summerhaven and it was neat to see the landscape change from southwestern desert landscape to a landscape that looked a lot more like what you might see in Colorado. There’s a cute little general store in Summerhaven that sells delicious fudge, so we had to get some.
The shopping was also fun. I stopped at Trader Joe’s, the Apple Store, and a few other stores that I can’t find here in CDJ/ELP.
It was a nice, relaxing weekend and it was nice to get away and chill out a bit. I’m now back in CDJ, doing laundry, putting away stuff from the trip and so on. Hope all’s well in the blogosphere!
