Did you know it’s faster to fly to Paris from Ontario than it is to fly to Tucson? After 14 hours of travel, I arrived in Tucson for a conference.
We may have some pretty wicked humid days up in the North, but rarely have I felt straight on heat from the sun like that before. Aren't conferences in the desert in July wonderful?
One of the events in the conference was a cookout on a nearby ranch. I felt quite lucky to have such an authentic experience during travels.
The cookout was good. But the experience of being at a ranch in the middle of the desert...
...with a 4-man band playing traditional country music,
...watching the sun set…
…made for an amazing experience.
Aside from conferencing, I also visited La Indita. It’s my first time ordering a pitcher of sangria (to be shared by 3) and receiving the pitcher AND glasses both full. I really had no idea what to order, so I went with flautas. I don’t tend to eat a lot of food like this. It was tasty, and pretty good value for money, but kind of heavy (depending on your personal tastes). The owner was very pleasant too.
I also wanted to mention that I decided to publish my last post about France on my other blog. It doesn’t have any food in it – but lots of great pictures. If you’re interested in reading about “My Best Day in France”, click here.
