I can’t believe I’ve lived here for 2 years and haven’t been to this church. The History, the cultural influences, learning about the art that went into the church was so fascinating. I recommend it to anyone who visits Tucson.
There is this park in Tucson called Agua Caliente that offers contrasting scenery to the normal Tucson landscape with cacti and more cacti. It’s an oasis of sorts and a hidden gem, reminding me of Palm Springs. There’s ducks and turtles in this large body of water that is surrounding by palm trees. On one of the walking paths, I happened upon this scene that reminded me of something from a fairy tale or some epic story like Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings, where the hero goes and meets the nemesis.
During a visit to Palm Springs with some friends, we visited Joshua Tree National Park. We didn’t go through the whole park (they say it takes 2 hours to drive through with no stops), but we did make some stops along along the way, including stopping at Skull Rock . The rock formations around the park as a whole were impressive, but it’s pretty cool to see how nature decided to make this ‘skull rock’.
Definitely would suggest going and seeing the park if you ever get a chance. It’s great to be in nature because sometimes when you’re stuck in the city or in the burbs where there’s a Target 10 minutes, you forget how great nature is.
Yogurt Bowl from this place called Raw Remedy.
This was a friends yogurt bowl and it looked too delish not to take a picture of before eating. I got one of their smoothies which was pretty good. I don’t remember what it was called, but it was purple and it tasted like it was healthy. I know this because usually with unhealthy stuff there’s just too much sugar from un-natural stuff… and chocolate.
I walked these streets for most of my life. In moving, and coming back to visit I was definitely was able to the city in a new perspective and with a new appreciation. It made me realize how often times we can easily become get trapped in our own bubble unless we go out of way to break out of it.
I guess I could have went and found more fancier windows, but a bird apparently flew into our window, left it’s mark – and probably died.
Where that bird went after slamming into the window, I have no idea, but I suppose it’s time to clean off the windows.
I realize, in moving to the desert city of Tucson, that I need to up my sandal game. My stiletto game is on-point I think, but after living in Seattle, all I got are these flip flops for sunny days.
So I’ve been rocking these since I moved here. Even though it rained, I still wore them.
