4 days and 3 States later...

A few days ago I went on a four day bus trip travelling through California, Nevada and Arizona with two other girls. We had stops at Yosemite National Park, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam. I think out of the whole trip the one place I was most excited about visiting, was  Las Vegas.
Of course it's the city that never sleeps. We spend two days there, at the Excalibur hotel on the  Las Vegas strip. The city is like no other, I had no  sleep at all for the two days. 
There was so much to see, from an Eifel Tower, a Statue of Liberty, a little piece of Venice, the Fountains at the Ballegio and so much more. The city comes to life at night, the lights, the people, all famous hotels, all the attractions and shows. It was a great trip, thanx guys!!!  

Day 1: Yosemite National Park

Day 2: Las Vegas

Day 3: Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam

Freshly Ground in San Francisco

Last night South African band Freshly Ground performed in San Francisco. It was a full house with mostly South Africans in the audience, I think because everybody was singing along to the music.

 The band was great, they had the audience to their feet dancing to their beats. I had a great time listening and dancing to the music and being surrounded by fellow South Africans too. 
By the end of the night they ended of with the world cup song which was a perfect end to a great night.

Happy 4th of July!!!

Happy 4th of July!!! I managed to go a to parade yesterday and watch how Americans celebrate their Independence day. It was fun to see how people get involve and just come together and celebrate. Which was no surprise to me at all because one thing I've learned since living in the USA, holidays are taken seriously!!! And of course a reason to party!!!
