Det er jo gammelt indianerland, og ørkenen er kendt ved sine røde klipper. I forstaden her havde de bygget alle huse med røde/orange/sandfarvede sten, så det ligesom holdt stilen og lignede omgivelserne. Det så meget, meget fint ud.
Yesterday, I managed to get to see Scottsdale, a Phoenix suburb, during a break in the program. It was a really exciting place to see. I wouldn't have been very surprised if John Wayne had suddenly appeared round the corner on his horse!
This is old native American territory, and the desert is well known for the red cliffs. In this suburb, all houses were built using red/orange/sand-colored stones, to keep the look of the surroundings. This looks very, very pretty.
Det var rigtig sjovt at se butikken med cowboy-støvler! Så mange slags......
There was a long street with shops looking like they came straight from a western. The shops held beautiful, handmade quality things inside.
It was very funny seeing the shop with cowboy-boots! So many different kinds......
Han sad ret stille og var ikke specielt ægte. I den varme der er her, kan man godt blive lidt bekymret for, hvordan de ægte cowboys har lugtet!
I also met a cowboy!
He was sitting very still and wasn't real. In the heat of this town, you might start to worry how the real cowboys smelled!
The sunset was really beautiful, too. Palm trees against the sun are really special!
