Have found some more photos on the camera phone, from last week in Denver, Colorado.
I often forget I’ve taken these pics – quick-snaps of something funny or interesting :
Gas Station Beverages
About 1/2 hour after driving off, we stopped into a petrol station to grab a drink, and noticed that you can buy beer – at a petrol station – only if you’re over 21 of course.
The other odd thing is that my friend was “carded” to buy cigarettes – even though he is over 30 – he had to go back to the truck to grab his passport !
Good Morning View
By the time I arrived at the ski chalet, it was 11.15pm. Could see that there was snow about, but couldn’t see any more than that. Imagine my surprise when I peeked through the curtains and saw this :
Following the conference, I “went out for pancakes” – and couldn’t believe the SIZE of what arrived in front of me. A stack of three pancakes was only $4.99 as well.
Following breakfast, we went to a bookshop, which was huuuuge – including aisles of Spanish language books, and the biggest “self-help” section I’ve ever seen. Ruben was amazed to see a “Depression For Dummies” :
Is that a raccoon on your head ?!?
Burger King vs McDonalds
In Australia, Burger King is known as “Hungry Jacks” – someone told me that it’s because McDonald’s took a copyright on the name “Burger King”.
The gloves are off in the battle of the burger – I saw this poster at the airport, basically saying “our burgers are bigger” :
A shop in Denver had many, many comedy T-Shirts, which I just took a picture of the best ones – rather than buy them ! (didn’t have any room in my suitcase)
A few good laughs – I nearly bought the “teople poo” one – very funny !
