We crossed the Sierra Nevada Mountains today and are now in the middle of the desert in Nevada. It’s 8pm and we are exhausted!

The car did very well and Adolfo was a fantastic driver. There were several tense moments and we decided that going down hill at a 7% incline was much more scary than going up hill at 20 mph with RV’s coming up fast behind us.

Yosemite was beautiful and we stopped and took pictures along the way. Hopefully, you will be able to see them soon on Adolfo’s site.

We’re 200 miles from Las Vegas, so we should be able to get there in good time tomorrow.

I’m a little concerned that Adolfo is going to have “US Culture” overload – Las Vegas on the 4th of July. The Yard Sale was the first of the (most recent) US Culture lessons. (You can see his reaction on his site.) He was pretty much blown away that you could take all your junk and lay it out in front of your house and people of all races and economic levels would come by and pay you to hall away your junk! (He contends that in Mexico if you lay your junk out in front of your house, people will drive by and point and laugh at you.)

Las Vegas on the 4th may just put him over the edge. It will definitely be an architectural event!
