On the Road

Porterhouse, baby!

San Francisco, Yosemite, Mono Lake, Death Valley, and Las Vegas. Those were the highlights and low points of our whirl wind tour through the Wild West with 26 Dutch tourists and a trailer in tow.


What do we do on our night off in Vegas? Sleep!


Well, not exactly. There was a $70 Porterhouse and a couple of serious margaritas involved to soothe the pain from our babysitting job.
San Francisco was fantastic. The best Chinese food at the house of Nanking, thank you Peter. The best Dim Sum at Tom Kiang, some Russian Pastry, and a great World Cup final.


Yosemite is a zoo. This is not a park. Ban all private traffic and commerce in the Valley. Enough said.


Mono Lake surprised us with a spectacular thunder storm. Wish you were here, if you know what I mean…


Then we roasted at the furnace of Death Valley. It was 48C. Dry heat, though. It melted off the sole of one of our passengers.


Finally Vegas, baby. Tolerable only with blood alcohol levels exceeding the legal limit.


On with the show…
