Whirlwind Adventure!

I saw Professor Jun’s holiday pictures today. Damn, that man can take a lot of photos.

I asked how his vacation had been, and the answer was, not fantastic. His wife had booked a tour for 5 days, 6 nights that included LA, Disneyland, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, Pebble Beach, and Monterrey. Obviously not in that order. But think of it: All that in 6 days? I asked him how. His answer? “No sleep.” Seriously.

The tour started with a 3:30am wakeup call. Breakfast was at five. How is this relaxing? As Professor Jun put it, “It is not right to eat then.” They got on the bus and stayed on the bus, as they were committed to ‘seeing’ as many things as possible. The itinerary was brutal. An hour at the Grand Canyon. Two at Yosemite. Las Vegas from 8pm to 7am. They took a night tour and saw that volcano hotel, the Bellagio fountain display, and Caesar’s Palace. Jun snapped a blurry shot of a gondolier as they drove past The Venetian. Disneyland: One day. Pebble Beach, two hours. San Francisco: Five hours. Monterrey: An hour. Sheesh!

He looks exhausted. I know he paid a tremendous amount of money for this tour, and what has he got from this experience? A lot of photos, sleep debt, and being able to say, “I was there.”
