    Nighty Night in Amarillo

    June 8, 2015 in the United States

    We did not go back south to Lubbock. And sitting in the hotel discussing what led to our sleeping in Amarillo, we decided that what happens with the sisters stays with the sisters. Unfortunately, Bill knows all.

    Amarillo by Morning

    May 1 in the United States

    We wanted to see what Amarillo was like, so we drove through the Historic Route 66 District complete with shops, restaurants, and bars. Next we headed out to see Cadillac Ranch, where multiple spray painted Cadillacs are half buried into the ground. The RV Park next door had an attraction all of its own: the 2nd amendment cowboy (he was 22 feet tall and used to advertise a Texas BBQ steakhouse).

    Along the way we were entertained by the TONS of American & Texan flags, and the quirky gas stations. I was mind-boggled by the drive-through window at the liquor store! Eric was in love with the huge brick home with tons of land.

    Cadillac ranch, TX

    May 28, 2016 in the United States

    Thought overlay of thousands of travelers in Graffiti on Cadillacs, beginning with those of the art group Ant Farm. Pretty sure the thoughts of its creators in 1974 are deep buried in the layers of colored spray.

    Cadillac ranch consists of what were either older running used or junk Cadillac automobiles, representing a number of evolutions of the car line (most notably the birth and death of the defining feature of mid twentieth century Cadillacs: the tailfins) from 1949 to 1963, half-buried nose-first in the ground, at an angle corresponding to that of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.Read more

    Supper in Memphis, TX

    June 8, 2015 in the United States

    At first we thought we'd eat supper in Lubbock. But the longer we drove, the farther away Lubbock seemed to be. After whizzing by eateries in towns so small that we were through them before we knew we were in them, we got smart and used our phones to search for restaurants in the town coming up, i.e. Memphis. Rock Inn Cafe is where we landed, at 7:45 p.m. There was no one in the cafe except employees, who assured is they were open till 9. While browsing the menu, we discovered there were bible verses printed on the pages. The staff was friendly, other people came in while we were eating and the food was good. We asked our waiter how far to Lubbock and he replied, "About 2 hrs. And watch out for the deer and feral hogs."

    Now we were pretty discouraged as we thought we'd be in Amarillo by 9. There must have been too many stops along the way. We decided to spend the night in Lubbock.

    So I called Bill and asked him to find us a good deal on a hotel in Lubbock. He did. I typed the address into my phone, and Lubbock was even father away AND was SOUTH of us. What? ! Then we passed a sign saying Amarillo was 60 miles away! I thought we had to go through Lubbock to get to Amarillo. Wrong.

    So I called Bill again and explained the situation to him. Then he explained to me that the reservations could not be cancelled.

    Amarillo, TX

    November 15, 2015 in the United States

    Die von Tom Astor besungene Stadt (http://youtu.be/gt8n5BwE368) haben wir tatsächlich über den Rio Grande erreicht. Lange Fahrt im Dunkeln, an einem wüsten Autounfall vorbei und froh die beträchtliche Meilenzahl munter hinter uns gebracht zu haben legen wir uns nun aufs Ohr. Und bereits am ersten Morgen in Texas werden wir mit den ersten bescheuerten Gesetzen konfrontiert: kein Alkoholverkauf an Sonntagen vor 12 Uhr mittags. "It's to worship God" sagt die Verkäuferin. Dass man unter der Woche zwischen 7:00 und 24:00 Alkohol kaufen kann, dann wenn man eigentlich produktiv sein sollte, entzieht sich unserer gesunden atheistischen Logik.

    Zu unserer Belustigung hat jemand die dümmsten Gesetze Texas' zusammengefasst:
    - Verrechet müssen ihre Opfer 24h vor der Tat schriftlich oder mündlich warnen und die Art des Vergehens beschreiben.
    - Homosexuelles Verhalten ist eine Ordnungswidrigkeit.
    - es ist illegal, die Kuh eines anderen zu melken.
    - die Enzyklopädie Britannica ist in Texas verboten, weil sie eine Anweisung zum Bierbrauen enthält.
    - es ist illegal, stehend mehr als 3 Schlücke Bier zu trinken.
    - es ist illegal einen Büffel aus dem zweiten Stock eines Hotels zu erschiessen.
    - ... (unendlich lange Liste)
