I’m happy to say I’m out of NYC for the week and visiting bb in Phoenix. So far my vacation has been getting up at 430 am everyday. On Wednesday I had an early flight out of JFK. I flew Delta this trip. I was pretty pumped for the biscoff cookies and the fact that they were showing the Avengers. bb and I never made it to the theater for that and I love me a super hero movie. However, the very nice, very talkative, elderly Russian woman had other plans for me. Needless to say, I missed half the movie. But at least the flight went by fast.
Not wanting anything to go to waste/slave some money I packed lunch: mashed avocado and sprout sandwich, carrots, cucumber, radish, and jicama.
I’m pretty sure I was the only one gnawing on a whole cucumber on the plane. Wonder what that looked like to security on the scanner??
I spent yesterday afternoon learning the hard way that 1) Phoenix is in fact as hot as they say it is. And 2) Phoenix is also not a walking city. 1.5 miles in NYC – no problem – Phoenix – not so much. I had never been so happy to see a Starbucks. I ran inside for a passion fruit iced tea and to cool off. I must have looked nuts. My hair was everywhere and I was sweating up a storm.
I had walked myself over to the Heard Museum – A Native American History Museum not to far from my hotel (or so I thought), and a pretty well reviewed sight to see here.
My favorite exhibit was the Hopi Pottery.
I would totally rock on these. Headbands are so in right now anyway, right??
I love Native American culture. I took a class on different religions in college and Native American philosophy was one that I really connected with – and even more recently.
This sculpture really moved me.
On that note – I am off to a try a Phoenix yoga studio. Lucky only a 5 minute walk from the hotel – phew!
Then, I need to find some Mexican eats.
Happy Weekend Everyone!
Have you ever been to Phoenix?? Any recommendations for things to do/places to eat?
I think I am definitely renting a car for the rest of the trip so I can see more and maybe head up to Sedona and Montezuma’s Castle this weekend.
