Where I stayed
We went one day to the Heard Museum in Phoenix and found it really informative about the different Native American tribes and cultures, well worth the visit. We risked a fast food pasta joint for dinner on the way home and it was surprisingly good. There are so many restaurants and eating outlets around here it is really amazing. Tomasz and Mirkas place is in a new area and in a gated community. Lovely environment and a bit surreal as it is designed to be like a Tuscan village, so there are a lot of trees and grass and not a cactus in sight. It really feels like it could be anywhere except Arizona. The only give away is the heat.
The kids have throughly enjoyed hanging out with Kuba and Zuzanna
Chris Samantha and Zack went to watch Phoenix Suns (NBA Basketball team) play in Phoenix one night, while Cass and I stayed home. The game was a playoff game against the current NBA champs, the San Antonio Spurs, and unfortunately the current champs were too good on the night as they won by 20 points to 3-0 up in the best of seven series.
We also spent an evening with friends of theirs, Piotr and Mariola who lived nearby in a beautiful new home. Such interesting people, also originally from Poland and both having travelled extensively and worked in many different places around the world.
We enjoyed the meals we shared and the relaxed way we could come and go, and especially how the kids all entertained each other! We will enjoy more of that when they make it to New Zealand. Our last breakfast together was great and it was really sad to wave goodbye as we hit the road for our next destination. munds park, just south of Flagstaff.
