Here we are to our participation to this 2007 Edition of the Tucson mineral show.
We left early ( 5.am )in the mornig to the Linate airport in Milan to take the flight to London where a nice sun waits us: a good start!!!. During the flight to London a fantastic panarama of the Alps full of snow. We remeber our mineralogical trips to the alps and the famous mineral locaties of Grimsel , Gottard.
In London we wait for about 3 hours the connection to Phoenix , where we finally arrive after more than 10 hrs of flight and 8000 km.
In the last part of the flight we had the occasion of a fantastic view of the monument valley, painted desert and the Grand Canyon: really impressive !!!!!
In Phoenix we rented a car and arrived to Tucson after 2 hours.
It is 5 o'clock in the morning in Italy and we are relatively tired: 24 hours without sleeping.... but we decide to have the firts two margaritas of the week and a light Mexican dinner....
In the restaurant there is a band with live music : nice drinkin, nice eating and good music: the best way to start the visit!!!!
Tomorrow will be our first Minerals day starting from the Innsuites Motel....
