My boyfriend and I have lived in Phoenix, Arizona for the past three years.
- After we moved to the city, both of us started working full-time jobs.
We didn’t have a vacation for many months. The first time we had a day off together, we decided to explore some of the Phoenix area. The day was hot and humid, but most places we visited had AC. We went downtown to the museum and we had a nice lunch in a Phoenix Delicatessen. During the afternoon hours, we decided to drive outside of Phoenix to the desert area. My boyfriend and I stayed in the desert until the sun went down. We could see thousands of stars in the night sky after the sun went down. It was impossible to see all those stars in the city because of the lights from the buildings and the stores. Even though it was cold after the sun went down, my boyfriend and I still sat outside in the desert and watched the stars for several hours. We finally left to go back to our apartment after midnight. By then, the streets were empty and the highway didn’t have any cars. We had the whole highway to ourselves and Phoenix looked like a ghost town from 10 miles outside of the city. It took about 30 minutes to get back to our apartment. My girlfriend and I were happy to sit down on the couch and put our feet up on the coffee table. We had a very full day of sightseeing and for the first time in a while, the two of us were beat. Both of us wanted to turn the air conditioner down low and lay in bed until we fell asleep.
