Tucson. Last stop of the great adventure and I can tell that I'm running out of gas.
I'm going home tomorrow so am trying to do those last minute tourist things like finding a bottle of good bourbon or tequila to bring back. Obviously I need the place to be downtownish as that's where I'm located so I ask the newb at the front desk where I can go and she points me in the direction of the Circle K which, as I found out soon enough is a gas station. Mm, no. But there's a cop car there so I ask him where I might find such yummes and he points down the road and says that two blocks thataway , at the corner of Congress and Grande there's a liquor store but it might not be open. Well, what else d I have to do today but muck about so off I go figuring two block would be an easy stroll.

Did I mention that I was in Tucson? And that Tucson is in the freaking desert? My pants were melting by the time I walked the two blocks which, uncharacteristically of civilised block sizes in the rest of the planet, spanned at least twenty miles.
Or at least it felt that way... :-/

So I made it to the little store - a drive-through liquor store...** boggle ** and settle for a spendy bottle of Reposado (Tequila)

Oops, time's up, gotta run..

remember what I told you?

"but it's dry heat"

Hot as it was I enjoyed it; if only because I'd never experienced a furnace blast like that before. The neat thing was that I almost always felt dry; a very un-Montreal thing indeed.

yep. Just like opening the oven door with your face next to it!

Are you home yet?

Are you going to write up a big post about your travels?

drive-through booze barns? that's the most normal thing ever. and i thought that was a local thing.

and like the person before, DRY HEAT... be thankful. 80 deg F with 80% humidity out here in cincinnati, ohio, is way worse than that pure heat out west. enjoy!

Drive through booze barns just seem so.. so.. anti "Don't Drink and Drive" message ever.

Dry heat rocks though. We get icky sticky here too, but not as bad as you seem to get it and I confess to prefering the dry heat.
