We bid a fond farewell to Roswell this morning.  What a lovely, friendly place.  I highly recommend it for a getaway vacation.  I feel like I got a sense of the southwest USA and I like it.  But it is too hot.  The temperatures were running 10-20 degrees above normal for this time of year which was a bummer.  At 10 degrees cooler, it would have been tolerable, but as it was, it was not.

The sunsets were strange.  There was no twilight...no dusk...no tapering into night.  It was bright sunshine, then dark.  It was very strange.  We would leave the hotel to go to dinner with our sunglasses on and by the time we got to the restaurant (about 10 minutes), it was completely dark.  Very weird.

Also, the stoplights are horizontal, not vertical like everywhere else.  The red is on the left, yellow in the middle, and green on the right.  Turn arrows, whether right or left, were on the extreme right.  I kept missing them if they were yellow ... don't know why, I just didn't see them.  Finally got used to it after about 2 days, but it was disconcerting.

Today we saw a huge dust devil bouncing across a field, then jumped the RR tracks, and finally crossed the road in front of us and skipped across the field on the other side.  Those things are scary.  I had no idea they could get that big.

Finally arrived in the pit called Amarillo.  Ate some dinner, went to wal mart, then got some frozen yogurt.  Thankfully we only have to stay here one night.  Three days to home.
