... country we live in; and despite all the joking (ya right) we are having a truly wonderful experience and are blessed to have been able to do this while we are still (somewhat) able!
So today was the Desert Museum. This place has several acres of land with trails that take you around the perimeter and through the middle. Each trail leads you to the types of animals that live in the desert in live habitats. There were ...
... around on the main streets, so it has become a profitable business to purchase one and use it as a taxi cab. Therefore, every bar has three or four parked outside of it and they will give you a "free" home for a gratuity (i.e. whatever you can afford).
Unfortunately Laura's house was not within the golf cart limits so we had to take a regular cab, but she has a really nice place (with a yard and underground pool!) so for her sake it is well worth being outside of the cart zone.
... so off to the pool it was! So at 4pm, after chilling in the pool for an hour I went on a fast ride. The most hell raising, exciting, exhilarating experience! Following a zooming cowboy speed through the desert, sand and dust trails behind us. And just holding on for dear life! But I did it! Tom followed his slow ride straight away by a sport known as "team penning". Four people, who have never done it before, have to separate 3 cows from a group of ...
Today I met my Dad. Enrique took me to the place that he worked, my Dad bought me a burger and we talked. I told him about my mom and then he told me that he would drive me to L.A tonight. He never showed up. That made me so upset. I have enough money to buy a bus pass though. Enrique is coming with me. I am sitting on the bus now and going to bed. This is the bus that me and Enrique are on.
... All my tests are multi choice and open book with unlimited time to complete (including my exams) and six 250 word reflections too.
My two day a week timetable (Tuesdays and Thursdays) just got even better.
Next up was Phonetics, which I don't think will be as fun as I thought it might be, but nonetheless interesting. Major bonus is that Linguistics here isn't nearly as nerdy as back home and my class appears to be made up of people more like myself (I ...

We 'won' this hotel through Priceline for a great price and absolutely loved our stay. We had a beautiful and very clean room. For breakfast we didn't stay in the hotel but went to the Ihop that was only a few meters from the hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Tucson Hotel and Suites
We stayed at the Sheraton Hotel and Suites on June 10, 2004. We entered the hot tub in the evening. There were 3 of us there. After leaving the hot tub 2 of the people's bathing suits had changed color. We had chemical burns on our bodies. I called down to the night manager on duty and he offered to let us go to the hospital and they would pay for it. We took 2 showers and went to bed. The next morning we were in excruciating pain and told them that we needed to go to the hospital. They refused to take responsibility. We went to the hospital out of necessity. The hotel denied any accounability. I repeatedly tried to speak with the manager who would not speak with me. After 6 months of waiting, the hotel finally paid the copay on my insurance to be treated at the hospital. I would never advise anyone to stay at this property until the management staff gets their act together.
Ugly and depressing
This hotel, despite being a Four Points Sheraton and getting 3 stars in the AAA guide, is just not pleasant. It's on the corner of two very busy trafficky streets -- a constant noisy stream of vehicles from 5AM to midnight. There's a view of the fast-food and video stores across the street. My nonsmoking room on a nonsmoking floor smelled bad, the window screen was broken, and the TV had a very poor picture in both rooms I tried. But what was truly depressing was the hallway with its low cottage-cheese ceilings and concrete walls painted two tones of institutional-green. I'm not usually that sensitive to my environment, but it was just depressing from the get-go. The lobby is nice and the staff was pleasant but that's about it.
We stayed at the hotel in late june and couldn't be more pleased. The spacious rooms were in excellent condition and very clean. The breakfast was very good, and everyone from the front desk to housekeeping were very polite and helpful, and helped make our vacation in Tucson wonderfull. We can't wait to go back and would highlyt recommend this hotel
My wife and I stayed at the Sheraton Tucson for two nights (5/29-5/31) during Memorial Day weekend. We got a fantastic rate and found out that if we would have gone a week later we would have even saved more (its the off season).
Very comfortable hotel
We stayed here the first part of May 2004 and we were given an upgrade to a beautifully furnished suite by the pool. A complimentary breakfast was also included, eggs, bacon, cereal and fruit were all offered. Nice hotel with a good location.
My husband & I stayed at this hotel from 4/19/04 to 4/23/04. We got it at the entertainment rate which made it an excellent value. It was a little further from hwy 10 than we had anticipated but that was a minor inconvenience & certainly, not the hotels fault. The room was spacious & very clean & looked to be newly decorated with, of course, Sheraton's "heavenly beds." The bathroom was on the small side & didn't look to be redone but was nevertheless, spotless. We arrived early & even though the rooms weren't ready for check-in, the personable young lady at the front desk allowed us to chose the room we wanted & blocked it for us.
Not a great place
I had to go to Tucson on business last month and because all the other hotels in the area were sold out, I stayed at the Sheraton in Tucson.
From the moment I arrived, I could tell it was going to be a bad week.
The front desk staff could not find my reservation and were short with me. My room smelled like mildew. The bed spread had cigarette burns on it and the carpet was dirty. I wore socks the whole week. I would not recommend this hotel. The best part of the stay was the IHOP near by.
Lovely hotel with Great! Staff
I stayed here for over a week on business and was impressed with the "boutique" feel of the hotel. The rooms were large and well-appointed and the grounds were very well kept. The breakfast was good but after a week got old (check out the Good Egg down the street for a good breakfast) and the food at the Sports Bar was much better than expected. The most incredible thing about the hotel was the wonderful staff, they were incredibly friendly during my entire stay. I even talked with my housekeeper several times and she was a delight :) Would highly recommend this hotel.
My family of 5 stayed at this hotel from Dec. 26-Jan. 3, 2004 for my daughter's tennis tournament. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the room for the AAA deal we got. The room was clean and bright but the drapes can be drawn to total darkness if you want to sleep in. The beds were firm and very comfortable, the fluffy comforter were a welcome treat. The sheets, towels, pillows, and pillowcases were new and felt like home. The swimming pool and jacuzzi were clean and my kids enjoyed their time there. They also serve a full breakfast, a big plus for all of us. It is also close to many great restaurants, and shopping centers. My only minor complaint is the condition of the steam room and sauna, the doors need to be fixed to achieve the best result.
