CA-NV-AZ!

It's time for Annie to blog about her trip with Vinh to CA-NV-AZ [Cali, Nevada, Arizona] :)

First off, my tourguide was a white dude named Dan & he knows Mandarin & Cantonese, holy :O Boy was I shocked to see a white man as my tourguide & then he blew me away with his skills, haha. He kept calling me "Annie Honey" though :/ Anyways onto the details!



7/17 - Yosemite
---switched buses at Milpitas & got Alex as my bus driver again :D
---stopped in Oakdale for lunch @ Carl's Jr
---saw El Capitan, biggest piece of granite on Earth
---went to see the not-so-impressive Yosemite Falls that barely had any water & I got distracted by how cute the squirrels were there
---went to the landscape view of Yosemite Valley & I finally got my rainbow shot!
---got to the hotel in Fresno & had dinner @ Taco Bell


7/18 - Las Vegas
---stopped at Barstow Outlets for lunch [In N Out] & shopping [got new red heels & a black pirate tube top]
---moved into the Las Vegas Club & Casino & unpacked
---went on a city tour of Vegas

---went to the Venetian next to wander about
---went to the Bellagio next to watch the water show



---headed back to the hotel & walked around Fremont Street for shopping


7/19 - Grand Canyon & Las Vegas
---watched the Grand Canyon IMAX movie & had lunch there & also bought a blue necklace
---headed to the Grand Canyon & it was beautiful :O, but some elderly folk fainted cuz it was too hot so we were delayed a few minutes heading back

  1. Aww sounds like you had LOTS of fun. Aww, that's GREAT!! I get amazed when Caucasion's can speak Chinese better than people who are Chinese. LOL I'm trying to teach Jordan Chinese, and it sounds funny. Aww, Vinh can speak that many languages? That's so...cool. Anyways, glad tou had so much fun, twin.
