What a great time to get out of Tucson! And go to another Southwestern tourist destination! Lots of sun, restaurants.
Actually I had a great time visiting my parents in Palm Springs, California. We went out to eat to a primo restaurant, I joined my father to two education conference talks, and my dad and I went on a mountain bike ride.
The drive was a mean 5+ hours, but sometimes the open road beckons. Now it's on to escape this semester, get home to the Midwest for Christmas, and get a postgraduate degree in the Spring, and see what happeneth.
