On our way to the canals of Xochimilco where we took a ride in one of the beautiful trajineras (wooden boats), we strolled through the main square where these three Mexicans were sitting on a bench watching the world go by. Like everywhere in Mexico City so far, everyone was very friendly and they were happy for me to take this shot.

During our road trip through Northern Arizona our path crossed the famous ‘Mother Road’, Route 66, several times. On our last day we decided to drive the section of Route 66 from Seligman to Kingman, one of the few in-tact segments of the highway which originally stretched from Chicago to Los Angeles. On the way we found numerous original gas stations, motels, road side shops with classic 50s & 60s cars out front and other Route 66 memorabilia which awakens the nostalgia of the Great American Road Trip from the Midwest to the Pacific Coast.

We decided to take Millie to Mount Lemmon in the Santa Catalina Mountains last week to cool off. It has been 109F /43C almost every day and going up into the mountains was very refreshing for all three of us. Mount Lemmon is 9000ft (2743m) high and the ecosystem changes the higher you go up – from the Sonoran desert with hundreds of cacti on the bottom to one equaling Southern Canada with pine trees on the top.

Polaroid of the Week – Sunset in Tucson, Arizona

The desert landscape and clear skies make for such beautiful sunsets here in Tucson.  Normally Dani can’t help but stop and get shots with a cactus or little lizard in the background as the sun sets beyond the mountains. This was our sunset from today, and although it might not be spectacular,  we just couldn’t help imagining the views the pilot in the plane making that sweeping streak across the skyline must have had!

Polaroid of the Week – Saguaro Cacti

no thumb

In and around Tucson and the Sonoran Deserts there are hundreds of thousands of Saguaro Cacti, Arizona’s state flower. Being surrounded by these gigantic cacti every day still feels very surreal. A Saguaro can get 150 – 200 years old and reach a height of  up to 18m/60ft. The  Saguaro State Park west and east of Tucson has countless hiking trails that allow you experience the beauty of the Saguaro to the fullest.
