Almost Out Of Eden

sunny

Our time here is drawing to a close. We haven't done a huge amount of riding this week as unfortunately there hasn't been any snow for about 10 days (we blame the Smolen for bringing rain with him). We had about 6 inches land on Thursday night so we had most of a full day yesterday, hanging with the Monopallooza crowd.

No, it's not a load of people with glandular fever, they are actually monoskiers.

UPDATE: we've hit the mountain for the last time. The last run has been ran. The last jump jumped. The last skier has cut me up. Sad but true. We get the train tomorrow for San Francisco. Exciting!

Quick note on the beers of Utah: they are very very good. Despite the fact that you can't just walk into a bar and get a drink (true; you have to be a member of a 'private members club'), and despite the fact that the only things they seem to export are Bud, Rolling Rock and Corrs, there are some fantastic beers here. We've sampled a wide selection, and hopefully will fit a few more in tomorrow as we wait for the train.

The selection (OK, the middle one is from Mississippi)

The funniest of the lot: Polygamy Porter "Why Have Just One", also "Bring Some Home For The Wives". Tastes a bit like you could make roads out of it, but worth a chuckle anyway

Our internet access will become a bit more sporadic from now on but hopefully we'll have a bit more to say for ourselves when we do post!

Lastly, we have made the first change to our itinerary. We're now going to fly from Miami to Guatemala on March 30th, then go to Spanish school for 3 wks in Antigua in Guatemala (including over Easter which looks like it should be quite bonkers). Then we are going to overland to Belize, spend a couple of weeks there and then head up to Mexico to (hopefully) meet up with the lovely Daisy and Stu.

I'll have a go at updating the itinerary at some point........

Peas.
