Culture Clash

Leonid Brezhnev and Nikita Khrushchev have made themselves quite comfortable here in SoCal. We met up with them at the Nixon Presidential Library, where we quickly realized that Disneyland isn't the only attraction requiring a multi-day pass. After a couple hours on The Enemy Within, a special exhibit put together by the Spy Museum, we didn't really have the stamina to fully appreciate all the Nixon-propaganda. We had conserve our energy and imagination for Disneyland.

Tuesday, January 30, cloudy, slight showers. Apparently the perfect day to brave the "happiest place on earth." The lines we'd prepared ourselves for, weren't there! And not just because we had Ukiah and his sprained ankle in a wheelchair. We were in the door and on Space Mt twice before the park had been open a half hour. It's a Small World and Splash Mt were closed, but we made up for it with multiple trips on Thunder Mt and Indiana Jones.

I'd share the details, but am distracted. Who knew poison oak could have a delayed-reaction of sorts?

Hi Folks! I do like the photo of you all with Winnie the Pooh. Sounds like D-land was good for you--glad it was you there and not me! next destination? Love, Mom, Gma

We have a special affinity for Pooh, though were quite disappointed that owl was under represented in Critter Country. More on Disneyland soon.

Now we're in Desert Hot Springs, just outside Joshua Tree Park and Palm Springs. I'm hoping the mineral baths will be good for my unbelievably awful poison oak.
