Sunday Sunday Sunday

Woke up after a much needed nine hours sleep in Ontario, Oregon and hit the road. Idaho was pretty; we stopped in Twin Falls for lunch at the adorable Depot Diner, and then went by the Hispanic Heritage Festival (!!!) downtown -- which was stunning custom low-rider cars. Plus low rider bicycles, which was a new one for me. Stopped by Crystal Hot Springs for a swim in their olympic size 94F pool --- wasn't in our "Hot Springs & Hot Pools of the Northwest" (is that because Utah is no longer northwest?) -- but such an excellent surprise. Stunning views.

Then on down to Salt Lake City, via a brief detour when we came off one city too early, and were surprised at how rinky dink SLC seemed to be. Then we figured out our mistake, and found the real thing, and were surprised at how rinky dink it was trying very hard *not* to be. Huge streets, massive blocks. Every street is 6 lanes wide. Big imposing buildings. The temple itself is awesome: totally fairy tale. And if you haven't, go and read the Mormon's founding story, with the angel Moroni appearing to Joseph Smith in upstate New York three times over the course of a night, each time repeating what he said before plus a little bit more, and eventually guiding him to a cave with scriptures written on gold plates...

We tried to go out to a gay bar that was listed in our guidebook, but it was closed, and we ended up at a nice cafe/bar/eatery place that was amazingly still serving at 10pm on a Sunday night. It turned out to be new-comics night, which was horrible. ("So my family's Persian, and you know what Persian weddings are like." Uh... probably not.) One guy, Sahdiki, was awesome, tho, and is apparently on tour. Then back to the hotel for an early night.
