    Route 66: Fat Man and Little Boy

    September 20, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Am heutigen Ruhetag (für 2/3 der Gruppe) kann jede/r machen, wozu sie/er Lust hast. Das bedeutet zum Teil am Pool zu entspannen, wobei das Wetter heute nicht so richtig mitspielt. Außerdem wird zwangsweise etwas geshoppt, da wir trotz intensiver Bemühungen inzwischen die Hoffnung aufgegeben haben, dass der von der Airline vergessene Koffer eines Mitreisenden uns auf der Tour noch einholt.

    Für zwei von uns geht es in das 50 km entfernt gelegene Los Alamos. Eigentlich ein kleines Nest, hat es durch das heute noch existierende Los Alamos National Laboratory als Geburtsort der Atombombe (traurige?) Berühmtheit erlangt. Das Bradbury Science Museum geht intensiv auf die Geschichte und die Entwicklung der Atombombe aber auch heutige Forschungsgebiete ein. Insgesamt ein aufschlussreicher Besuch mit überraschend wenig patriotischer Propaganda. Trotzdem wird die Meinung vertreten, dass Nuklearwaffen aufgrund der abschreckenden Macht zum Erhalt des internationalen Friedens beitragen... Jedenfalls lohnt es sich, die Geschichte der zwei (grundverschiedenen) Waffen Little Boy und Fat Man nachzulesen.

    Los Alamos - The Manhattan Project

    June 5, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Da har vi besøkt Los Alamos.

    Stedet hvor amerikanerne utviklet den første atombomben.

    Nøyaktig på stedet hvor "The Gadget" ble satt sammen, var det satt opp et minnesmerke.

    Litt passende at på stedet for utviklingen av den mest ødeleggende kraften mennesket har skapt, er det nå anlagt en vakker park. 😊Read more

    Route 66, Texas

    May 4, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    At last the strong southerly winds have died down. Now there is just a gentle north east breeze. We decided to set off at 7am and make up some miles. We crossed into Texas and stopped at a few iconic Route 66 sites, an old garage/cafe and the cadillac ranch. We also had a fuel stop on the interstate where we met some old bikers on tiny vintage American bikes. There was also a quirky museum at the petrol station. The breeze did pick up briefly going through Texas but started to die down by the time we crossed into New Mexico. Perfect day on the roads, we ended up doing 500miles today. Stopped the night in a Holiday Inn at Los Alamos.Read more

    Los Alamos, United States

    February 15, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    Left taos to find something better and found it! Los alamos was peaceful but welcoming. Food not cheap or many options so i got groceries. Didnt go to museums but they looked interesting. Went hiking at bandelier national monument. I did the hike right off of the highway. I also did another hike with historical pueblo ruins. February was a great time for this weather-wise. The hike off of the highway was deserted early in the a.m., but people showed up a bit later. That loop contained 2 ladders (not fun if you're afraid of heights), but it was worth it for the peaceful views and exercise. The more populated hike was the ruins hike. I didn't love it as much because it was in the valley - aka. not great views. It also was much more touristy with a visitor center and people everywhere.Read more
