Sine it was my first time in the US, I was eager to see other parts of this huge country as well. To my joy Jeff had suggested that we could visit his grandparents living in Palm Desert, California. Being from Norway and all, I won’t say no going to a place where the temperature is noticeably higher than my snowy and godforsaken country. It’s even a wonder that people still live in Norway, if you ask me. Bet nobody would want to live there if it wasn’t for the fact that we have salmon and oil.
Sitting by the window in the plain, looking out, is extremely fascinating. Never have I seen a landscape shifting this fast. There were so much to look at. Oh how I wish I could drive through the US with my camera at hand. Company would be much appreciated though. You definitively need someone to share this with.
Getting closer to Palm springs and warmer climate you sure see a huge difference from Chicago. And then, boom, all these green areas pop up. In the middle of the desert. Apparently, here all the rich and retired people live. They sure live in paradise. Flying over Palm Desert, looking down at all these houses, golf areas and pools I secretly wished that I would become rich and could get retired here as well, but on the other hand side, I don’t like golfing that much and I would probably die of the heat during summer.
At the airport two lovely ladies are waiting for us. I find myself looking upon a woman who does not fit the age she is in. She looks so young for her age. She has the most beautiful skin I have ever seen, a kindness to her that immediately hits me and a strength I hope I will be so lucky to have when I turn her age. She can even handle an iPhone. Even I can’t do that. I just love this woman. We head for the car and I find my self sitting in one hell of a car, with a lot of buttons that does random things with your seat. I love the car as well.
After eating lunch we head to grandma’s house. Paradise to me. Jeff showed me around the house and I was shocked. I found myself in the most beautiful house I had ever seen. I had no words. I was just stunned really. I almost felt rude, walking around the house with my jaw hanging to the floor. The room I was staying in was so lovely! I am so grateful to Jeff doing all this for me. I am so happy I could meet his grandparents! Jeff’s grandfather was such a charming and lovely man. He made me laugh so much.
Jeff took me around the area where his grandparent’s lived. It was my first time sitting in a golf car, so that was a lovely experience. The rest of that day, I ran around taking pictures of all this eye candy, giggling like never before.
