Anyways, moving on with the rest of our Tucson trip we took over St. Patty's Day weekend. Read Part 1 here.
After I took my Certified Nursing Assistant exam on Saturday I headed to Hotel Congress, the place we'd be staying for two days of our trip that was recommended by some friends. I had taken the car with me to the exam site and Vince and Roxi had just walked over since it was close to our other hotel, yet in a completely different part of town.
You can tell Tucson has a lot of money because everything was gorgeous and surprisingly clean. Everything that could have a fun detail, like security gates, fences, trash can, ANYTHING, was special! The streets had no litter, the fences were all beautiful, even the bus stops were fancy!
One thing that was strange was that there weren't a lot of stores open on weekends. Almost all of them were only opened Monday through Friday, and if they were open on weekends it was only for four or five hours a day. So weird, it's usually the opposite! When we talked to our waitress about it, she said it's been kind of a ghost town the past couples weeks since there is a ton of construction going on, so it could have been modified hours for that.
So that's all for now. This post has way too many pictures as it is. I'll have one more most about the hotel!
