Trip to California - 8th day
Okay … California isn´t really correct. Wait … the Death Valley is in California … but Las Vegas is fine for Hotels … and Las Vegas … well it´s in Nevada. At the moment i´m on the passengers seat of a car driving on the Interstate 15 between Barstow and Las Vegas and write the beginning of this blog entry … from the desert … when you say it this way. We just took the 99 South to Bakersfield and drove from there on the 58 East to Barstow.
Typing is a little bit slow … i´m looking out of the window most of the time. The landscape is outright spectacular. Since we started this days trip in Oakhurst we saw several different landscapes … from deep green to desert beige. When there is a CEC2009 in Vegas again i think won´t fly to Vegas … i will fly to an airport directly connected from Germany (like Denver, SFO or LAX) and take a rental car ;)
There is something i really like and dislike about the US so far: There are really great radio stations … especially when you like classic rock (i heard a really excellent version of “Careless whisper” so far). You don´t hear such music in the fully formated german radio stations … especially those in Hamburg. Then there are the spanish radio stations … i have ignored them … but it´s just me or is this music similar to bavarian folk music? The think i really dislike are the christian radio station … with a moderators saysing “… you see how incredible god really is …”. I´m sure such guys slaps their kids at home and sleep their wife in ways unsupported by the bible after their job ;) And then there are is songs remembering me to this song in a Simpsons episode “Aaaaaand when you not not buy the CD … Al-Qaida wiiiins”. But i assume i´m not the intended audience.
Well, just 41 miles to Vegas now.
