Seeing Phoenix — the whole enchilada

This morning we woke up and went out to see some of the sights of Phoenix. We went to see an exhibit on the Salt River Project, a most amazing project that provides water to what was formerly a desert and enables Phoenix to be the country’s 5th largest city!

We then went to see the state capitol building where we saw some amazing exhibits like these including the silver objects that had been on the USS Arizona at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Among them was a fabulous copper and silver punchbowl and cups.

The building itself was beautiful and the grounds around it impressive. The dome on top was a bright and shiny copper.

On the way home we stopped at a restaurant where I ate my very first enchilada!!! Although it was a bit spicy, it was very very good.

Tonight we spoke once again about China and we met some very nice people. Miriam and Len have been great hosts and we look forward to seeing them again in Modi’in. Tomorrow– we head west in the direction of Los Angeles.
