Evan Ryan’s Travel Diary

Wednesday, 06 Jul 2005

Location: Tucson, Arizona, USA

MapWell its been nearly a week since I flew out so probably time to give you all an update. I had a great time in California with my Uncle and his family and my family from Australia too who are over here too.

We met alot of their friends and did some tourig around the Cochella and Imperial Valleys where its all irrigated farming. It was very hot so we spent alot of time inside or swimming when we weren't having a look about.

My Aunt and Uncle threw a big party for us on 4th July so was great fun to have a few beers and catch up. The photos of their house and the rock we climbed up will give you a bit of an idea of the area. It is very affluent with most residents just coming here for a part of the year as a holiday destination. Lots of expensive cars, houses and the rest!

I just flew into Tucson Arizona yesterday where my Grandma (Abwella is Spanish for granmother) as she likes to be called) lives as well as 2 uncles and their families and one Aunt. I just got off the plane and we went horseback riding through the desert with one of my cousin's friends and then back to their place for a bbq with their mates to "welcome the Aussie". I'll put these photos on as soon as I get them developed.

Am having a ball catching up with the cousins who are all grown up now and the hot weather is great.
