Magnifique journee dans l'Arizona, decor a perte de vue... indescriptible.passage dans une reserve "seche" (pas de vente de biere) mais la chance etait avec nous: un jeune indien nous a invite chez lui . Tres belle rencontre avec sa jeune femme dans leur maison typique dans le plus vieux village Hopi de l'Amerique du Nord. Le Nouveau-Mexique etait tres contraste avec le Texas: beaucoup de betails, mais pas beaucoup de cowboys.
What a day we had in New Mexico and Arizona! Where to start?... How about where we finished: in the small village of Kikotsmovi, Arizona, the oldest settlement according to our host Waylon Namingha and his wife Jenny Nauywaima, from the Bear clan of the Hopi tribe. Here's how it happens: we stop to snap a picture of an old village on top of a mountain and here comes this indian out of nowhere.

A perte de vue
Welcome to Arizona!
can't buy alcool as we are in a reserve. Now appreciate this: it is about 4:30 pm, 85 degrees, and here comes this angel from God offering us a cold beer in a dry reserve... We accept, park our bikes in front of his house, meet his wife, with two kids sleeping in the bedroom-living room. We sit down and listen to the most amazing life story. The hospitality and generosity (he offered us four his own precious beer) that this young couple displayed will last a lifetime of memories. We could go on and on about how they pray for water ( they get only 6 inches of rain per year!), how they hold ceremonies for every occasion, how they celebrate the god of healing and the god of the sun... We felt really privileged to be part of this impromptu get together. And this is what this journey is about! Sharing the moments!
