Two weeks ago, we left the kids with the grands for a few days and Jer and I flew down south to try to find housing for our next adventure. Our year-plus of travel is about to come to an end, and we needed to find a place to settle into our new life in the Southwest. The short story is that we found a little house to rent in a good neighborhood near what is reputed to be a good school. But that's the boring part. I took photos of some of the more entertaining parts of our visit and hopefully it is a taste of more good and fascinating cultural experiences to come (once we move there later in July).
|there are summer evening performances by the local People in the main square.|
(and others are sometimes invited to join in)
|the Jr. High Rodeo was taking place and we went to take a look.|
these girls were sharing a set of earphones while riding along.
|(the backyard and view of one house we looked at but didn't end up buying)|
|(look, trees! at least five, anyway...)|
|another [collapsing] house we didn't buy|
|standing on the roof of said house|
|it was hard to walk away from this one. it had trees growing out from it! |
then again...it was collapsing.
blue and stormy skies
|red rocks everywhere|
and these are some clips of awesome stunts the kids were doing at the rodeo (the next contestant in line didn't struggle so much with the calf and set a record for 9 seconds):
