Buena Vista Journey

Rental car tour of Mexico – Itinerary (Dec 1 – Dec 20, 2010)

Before Christmas season “officially” begins, Mexicans join together for festivities of the “Lady of Guadalupe”, on December 12. Two weeks of festivities is a good reason for us to plan for another trip to visit this warm country, where snow is called “white stuff” for the luck of understanding what snow really is!

Visiting Tombstone, Arizona

By: Zdenko Kahlina

The Town Too Tough to Die
I continued my stay in Tucson, Arizona, by visiting Tombstone, a city in Cochise County, Arizona, only about one hour of driving to the south east. The day when I arrived there, the temperature was about 80 degrees and sunny. Indeed, very pleasant day especially for early November… Tombstone is great. November is a great time to go.

Driving the Sky Island Byway

Up to Mount Lemmon along the Catalina Highway
On my first day in the Tucson area, I drove up to Mount Lemmon along the Catalina Highway. It was a typical beautiful sunny day in the desert, with temperatures around 85 Fahrenheit (around +30 Celsius), quite a change for me after leaving Edmonton only few hours ago with temperatures around zero degrees.

Off the Beaten Path in Tucson, Arizona

IBM Briefing on Storage in Tucson
I recently returned from sunny Tucson (AZ) and boy what a site it was… I was there from Nov 6 – 9, 2010 and every day was sunny and 75-80 with first day getting up to 89 degrees… I have not seen that kind of weather in Alberta since summer…

September in Arizona

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Authentic Ghost Town, Arizona

Things are different in the desert. The sky is bigger. The stars are brighter. The sunsets stop you in your tracks. It’s a feeling that can’t be conjured, landscaped or kindled with twinkling bulbs. Come to Greater Phoenix and you’ll understand.

The end of the track
The Velodromo Communale Vigorelli – the Vigorelli, for short – has perhaps the richest history of any cycle track in the world. Built in 1935, for the first 30 years of its life the Vigorelli was the beating heart of world track cycling.
