Location: Northern Arizona
Hosts: Alter Ego/Chris from Arizona & Frances, from Holland
Ginger bear begins her journey February 2009 in and around Bullhead city Arizona. The desert of Northern Arizona is a beautiful place with lots of cozy small towns, history and diversity. Ginger starts her day in and around the home of her host Chris. She wakes up in a beautifully decorated room then has some breakfast in the kitchen. She spends some quiet reflection time near the lake in the back yard and explores some interesting parts of the house, including a cabinet full of Elvis Presley figurines.
Ginger gets to meet many of the wild-west performers that reenact old west shoot outs in the street and sees colorfully named shops like, “Classy Ass gifts & things” and “Jackass Junction”. The names must have something to do with the local mule population.
Location: Tijuana Mexico
March 2009 Ginger arrived in Tijuana Mexico without too much trouble at the border. Dressed to match in pink, Ginger and her host go out on the town for a day of fun. Window shopping at a local plaza is great. There are many colorful things to see and buy. Hand woven ponchos, hats, clothes, art and more. It’s a fashionable bears dream. Ginger gets a chance to sit on a small figurine of a zebra painted mule. And then sits on a real life one too with a beautifully festive Eileen.
Continuing through the market plaza or “Plaza de Mercado”, Ginger and Eileen
see a war monument commemorating people who have fought for Mexico.
Ginger gets her picture taken with the Mexican flag and some gentlemen that
look like they are part of a Mariachi band.
Gingercita had a great time in Mexico.
