So lets see what's been going on. I went on my Contiki tour and got REALLY sick! So I still have a bad cough which isn't very good and I am still a bit snotty. The tour was really good, though I didn't really fit in very well with all of the people because they're all (according to me) alcoholics! I couldn't believe that they would go out night after night and just drink! It's an insane waste of money that can be spent on other things! I made some good friends though, who also didn't really get into the partying! I got to see SO much which was great. I went to San Diego which was beautiful. I caught up with Jen, the American exchange student that was over in AUstralia at our school. Do you remember her? She said that I can go and stay with her when I get back to the west coast which was nice! I also went to Tijuana in Mexico whcih was a lot of fun! BUT I don't like Mexican food from Mexico! I like the Old el Paso stuff that you can get back home! Oh and NO WHERE here (like restaurants) has veggies! I mean it's really weird! I feel SO deprived! So then we went to Scottsdale in Arizona (Jennifer Aniston lives there, but alas I did not see her). We saw some of those HUGE cactus thingos... I think hat they're called Sedona's or something like that and I have pictures, but this computer doesn't have a USB port in it, so I can't send them! But be warned that I will hopefully soon be able to send them! Then we stopped at Sedona for lunch which was nice and we were playing this game on the tour to get to know other people where you had to "assasinate" them (joking around of course) so no one would do anything on their own... like they wouldn't even go to the toilet! It was rather amusing! Then we went to the Grand Canyon and it was BEAUTIFUL! It reminded me a lot of Australia which made me even more home sick! It's really weird actually! So yeah, it was beautiful there! Then we went to Vegas (where I've already been) so it wasn't really all that exciting for me really! Then onto Bass Lake which was so good and where I got this horrible cold! And it was freezing there! Oh and did I mention that it was snowing at the Grand Canyon?!?!!?
So Bass Lake is near Yoesementi National park which reminded me of home AGAIN so I got a little more home sick and all I wanted was a hug to make me feel better (you know when you're sick and you just need a loving hug?), but didn't get one, so I still need one! So we did a little hiking there which was good. Then I got to San Francisco, and although it's a beautiful place, I wasn't really a HUGE fan of it! I got to go to Alcatrez though which was SO nice and I really enjoyed that one! I also went to the Palace of Fine Arts which was SO beautiful from the outside, i just sat and starred at it! Amazing place, it really was! And then yesterday I left there to come here to Seattle. 22 hours later on a bus! It wasn't actually that bad because it was mostly night time, so I can't really complain all that much. I didn't get murdered, stabbed or shot which is also a major bonus in my book! I did meet some interesting characters, but who doens't right? SO I am now in the city where Dark Angel was set and there's only ONE main thing that I want to see here and that's the Space needle! So I am only here for two days... then onto Chicago on a nice, short two day bus ride!
Sorry if you're on my mailing list and have already read this! I just copied and pasted it from my email! Hope that everyone is well! THought that I should update!
