This was not only just a tour for Cornel but for my mom as well, since she had never seen downtown. She had driven Cornel and I to Phoenix and was nice enough to take us to the airport at 4 in the morning.
We were pretty hungry after the drive and the walking, so we decided to have dinner at the Arizona Center overlooking the gardens and fountains. It was a great way to say goodbye to my mom and to eat some great food.
After dinner we were completely stuffed and decided that we had to walk off the food. So we did a walking tour of Phoenix.
And I got to live out my life-long ambitions of becoming a ballerina! Even Cornel got in on the dancing!
After some dancing we continued the tour of Dowtown and walked to the US Airways Center or as I like to call it, America West Arena... and Chase Field, or again as I like to call it Bank One Ballpark!
No matter where I am in the world I know that I am a Arizona girl at heart and I will always have a special place in my heart for Phoenix. Who knows, maybe someday life's journey will lead Cornel and I back to the States and back to Arizona, until then I will enjoy the trips back and seeing it all from a tourist's eye.
