Yep… Back in the cold… Okay, so maybe it’s not cold per say, but it definitely ain’t hot like Arizona was… Kinda hard to adjust. 😦
Here are some random observations from my vacation:
Arizona AIN’T FLAT!!!
I shit you not… I expected it to be flat, sandy, and yah, flat… It was quite the opposite. Mountains, rocks, and beautiful landscape everywhere. Some peaks even have snow.
Yellow Light doesn’t mean “prepare to stop” but rather “hurry the fuck up”
Over here, some people will stop at a Yellow light if they think they won’t make it… Or some just err on the side of caution regardless. There NOBODY stops at a Yellow, EVER.
If You Don’t Cover Your Dashboard… It’ll Crack
Everybody has dashboard covers in Arizona… To prevent the sun from cracking their dashboard. It’s that fucking hot!
Rain… Virtually non-existent
Yah… The sun is out every day, the sky is always Blue and the weather is pretty damn sweet. If it rains, it’s very minimal… Hence the abundance of desert. Summers are apparently pretty damn brutal though. Most people have pools in their backyard.
Guns, guns and more guns… We love guns!
People have guns in Arizona… Yah, they like their guns too! Went to this bar where I felt like the odd one out for not packin’. More on that later (via video).
Illegal Mexican Border Jumpers
There are tons and tons of Mexicans in Arizona who have jumped, swam, crawled, slid, or shimmied their way over the border. Often they can be found hangin’ on the street corner waiting to be propositioned for general labour and odd jobs.
Rock Gardens and Fruit Trees
Most people have a cactus and some rocks on their front lawn as appose to grass. Some have grass, but not many… People also have fruit trees on their property, lemon trees, grapefruit trees, tangerines… Pretty awesome!
So yah… those are just some odds and ends… All I could pull together at the moment. I’m tired now… Just got home a couple of hours ago and need to rest for the daily grind tomorrow. I’ll likely be posting some photographs shortly and i’m working on a video too (yes it’s another drinking video… Arizona style).
Hope you all had a stellar week!!
