A road trip to the sixth most populous city in the US - Phoenix.

Phoenix is 6,5 hours away from Albuquerque, but with all the stops that we made in between, it took us more like 8-9 hours to get there.

Props to Harold, who's always down to drive us around with his van.

First stop - Petrified Forest. It's a national park in northeastern Arizona. Named for its large deposits of petrified wood. (Petrified wood = wood turned into stone by the process of permineralization.)

  Encompassing semi-desert shrub steppe & highly eroded and colourful badlands.

Hello, Phoenix! All of us who had been to Miami before agreed that Phoenix looks kind of similar to Miami. Except there's no ocean...only dry desert. Still nice tho!

Wandering around Arizona State Capitol Building. Arizona has so so cool cacti. They're huuuuge.

Take-home message.

I don't know if it's just me, but Phoenix seemed to be very clean. Maybe even the cleanest city I've seen here in the US.

Brunch at Jobot. Good food, cute interior, but really shitty service. Waited for our breakfast for more than an hour....

This is how happy food makes me ↓

Downtown ↓

Compared to Albuquerque, the city is very walkable. Me gusta.

Hole-in-the-Rock (Papago Park) - must go place in Phoenix!! ↓

The actual hole in the rock provides a good view of the city of Phoenix west of the park.

Roosevelt Row (RoRo) ↓

If you like the Wynwood Art District in Miami, you're probably going to love RoRo too. Super cool & walkable art district with a lot of murals, galleries & cafes.

Ohhhhh, how I love murals...

Thank you AZ, you treated us well. 

No post without the sunset. Ciaooo.
