The good news is that the high temperature that I had lasted less than 12 hours, which meant that I pretty much slept it off. I suppose that I could blame some of the half cooked meat that I've been eating, but considering I'm used to the takeaway places of East London I would imagine that I'm used to it.
The Grand Canyon is indeed rather spectacular and once I get a convergence of free time and internet access I'll be uploading them. There has also been a small geek-out as we have driven past Black Mesa – one for all the 'Half-life' fans out there.
I also think that I'm getting more into the swing of things, although it does rankle that we are given only a few minutes to stop and explore at various places. We were allowed out at Monument Valley for long enough for me to get a slightly over suntanned arm.
Now I'm at a hotel at a place called Page just by Lake Powell, which I'm lead to believe is 'quite big'. Hiking tomorrow, which should be fun – or painful…
Even after looking at all these rocks that are billions of years old I'm still looking forward to the utter unreality of Vegas.
