Sun shines above it partner!
I love it! Woo!
Arizona's home to me.
Whenever I go to the US, I always have to go back to Tucson to see all of my old friends. The people I left behind there are like family to me and I love getting to see them whenever I can.
It was also a lot of fun getting to introduce James to all my friends there. I love seeing my two worlds (continents) collide. James ended up getting an even better understanding of me by seeing the world I grew up in and the people who have stuck with me as I grew up and became the person I am today.
Our time in Tucson was short and mostly spent indoors or with friends. However, I had to take James out into the desert while we were there and get him to see some of the wildlife that I grew up with. The perfect place to do that is the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.
The desert museum is like a botanical gardens, a zoo, and a museum all rolled into one. It's located about half an hour outside of Tucson. It's a good idea to go early and do the big outer loops first to avoid being out there in the afternoon when the sun is brutal.
James and I both lived under our hats and as you can see I bought the biggest one I could find.
Having said the days can be scorching, the desert nights are beautiful and many a night was spent out and about with friends.
Tucson will always be my home town.
