Where I stayed
Good morning so far. Emily (supervisor) has taken Karl to the doctors so she has taken the van, that left our crew at the nursery and we have been doing work like making a soil basket with huge planks of wood. I held a lizard, it was awesome! He was quite slow and was basking in the sun on one of our planks of wood, super cute.
Emily came back without Karl, he is lucky enough to have family in Vegas that picked him up, the doctor gave him loads of drugs for his back.
We finished the day early with a stretchdown. Amazingly - I touched my toes! This hasn't happened in well over 10 years, its just the morning stretch and all the physical activity has loosened me up a bit :-)
Today was taxing at all, just a really good day :-)
When I get back to England (and I have said this all before), I intend to really learn about stuff and explore the countryside, one girl and her tent
Nighttime, woooo. The nursery and campsite are very close to the Nevada border over the Hoover Dam, the first casino over the dam in Nevada is the Hacienda. Looks ok from the outside, on the inside it is an 80's wonderland! Everything is so dated, I loved it. Even all the music they played was like spandout ballet etc!
Since we had been driving past it like EVERY DAY we decided to go for a group buffet, $11.00 all you can eat and drink (soft drinks). I had 3 main courses, desert, then another main, then some icecream. God bless America....though that is whats wrong with the world.
Great great day and night!!!
