Back to travelling within the USA, and this time we went to Denver. Daddy has a bunch of really good friends there. We stayed at Matt and Chantell's house, 2 friends he met while being a waiter at a restaurant in Santa Barbara. They have been very good friends ever since, and have travelled together in Brazil and Thailand. They have 2 beautiful children, Veda and Riley, who are about my age. We had soooo much fun playing in their house. We went dowtown the second day, and ate at a restaurant which just so happened to have a bunch of Irish/Scottish dancers with their bagpipes parading through and around the restaurant. I also saw a HUGE blue bear dowtown. That night, we had a party at their house with other friends of my daddy's, Marc ... read more

Denver was pretty cool. I liked being in the city. Especially in the winterish time. The mountains are really pretty. We actually ate at Joe's Crabshack while we were there. I know it's a chain restaurant, but it was still good. If you are going to Colorado, I'd definitely just stop by Denver and go around downtown. You'll always find something to do.... read more

Dallas - Keepin it Pretentious We just got done staying 3 nights and 2 days in Dallas with our friend Molly (the hostess with the mostest) and learned a few new things, but mostly that Dallas is the place to be for cougar hunting. We started the trip off right by staying in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Richardson (just outside of Dallas). We woke up to the sound of loud-pitched screaming, the kind that would only come from a kid in a Wal-Mart. I think that is a very appropriate way to wake up if your in a Wal-Mart parking lot. The car proved to be very comfy, but cramped, especially for Matt. He had a few kinks in his neck the next day for me to work out (im such a great girlfriend) We ... read more

We arrived in Denver quite early, when the morning rush was in full force. People were going to their jobs and we were rolling in to town to be tourists. It was very cold out and windy, so walking around was almost not going to happen. We managed to snap some pictures while driving through. We finally found a parking spot and walked around for quite a while, being tourists.... read more

Today was our first official day of driving…the doctor said that my eye was still in pretty sad shape, but that we’d be ok if I kept going to doctors on the road every few days. My eye officially hates me, but at least its getting better! I can open it, so that’s always good news. We decided not to go to Tulsa to see Katie and Kelley ☹ we figured it was bad timing, as Katie is sick and Kelley will be very busy, so we’re going to try and make it on the way back. So Dallas here we come!!! 15 hours on the road? No big deal. We started driving at around 10 this morning and made it through Colorado, Oklahoma and are now conquering Texas! (No Marilyn, we didn’t get to Oklahoma ... read more

Our First Day "On The Road" Well, I decided that it would be fun to get a bacterial infection in my cornea yesterday and today!!! Yipeee! So I went to the doctor this morning and he told me there was no way I was leaving the state for 2 months without treating this yeatch. Im going back to see him tomorrow and hopefully he will give us the "OK" to hit the open road. So our first official day of our trip was spent in a dark room (my eyes are sensitive to light) with no TV on (again, my eyes are sensitive to light) and no computer! (you can guess why...) Good times. My eye is feeling much better, however, as we have been dumping prescription eye drops into it all day long...things are looking ... read more

today i'm writing from colorado, where i'm staying with tracey and her family just outside denver. it's pretty warm here comparatively, yesterday when we arrived it was 50 degrees farenheit, which was nearly t-shirt weather compared to all the temperatures i've been in recently! (though today it's back down to freezing!) in ann arbor it was the worst, days were between -15 and -25 celcius, so basically it was too cold to do anything. one day when school was cancelled cos of the cold, we took my cousin's kids to a play cafe, and while walking from the car to the cafe my wet hair started to freeze! that'll teach me for refusing to use hairdryers... a highlight in ann arbor was going to the outback steakhouse, which is meant to be australian. i'd heard ... read more

back in the west indeed. immersed in the western culture for the past several months, in fact. it is amusing for me to read back on some of my entries from southeast asia, remembering my lifestyle, my few belongings, and the feeling that i didn't know quite WHERE i was going, but i was certainly getting there in an interesting way. and then to compare this to my situation at this moment. i have only been here a few months, but asia seems like a dream-world, something i read about somewhere rather than something i did, just as the US seemed like a dream-world when i was in asia. sometimes i think the world is not spherical. it is flat like a coin, and i live back on the other side of the coin now. far ... read more
