This is the sunset.
Tucson is in the middle of a desert. There's
an Air Force Base here, a lot of golf and retirees, the University
of Arizona, and well the typical things you'd find in a town
without a symphony, a center of government, not a terribly bad
place to be.
There's strip malls, lots of huge supermarkets,
and a Wal Mart.
What is there to do here?
Tucson is a desert valley. It actually reminds
me a lot of the San Fernando Valley, in California. Except it's not
part of LA. And it's hotter. And you can't get to LA if you're bored.
Then again, perhaps Palmdale, Lancaster or any other part of the
Antelope Valley might resemble it even more.
Otherwise the houses look similar, in a sense
that it looks like a nameless suburb. Some of the subdivisions
those from the big builders look so plain. Land is cheap, the houses
are new, and the land sprawling.
I haven't explored town all that much. Perhaps
I should go downtown before passing judgement
reads as "Outpost at Sabino Mountain
offers beautifully appointed semi-custom homes on exceptional lots
nestled within the Sabino Mountain master community. This protected
location coupled with serene views of surrounding mountains and city
lights creates the ideal setting for the uniquely designed homes
being offered by a longtime developer in the community."
is a house there, it's 3600 sq feet, brand new construction,
3 bedrooms 3.5 baths, plus den dining room, master study, and
the walk in closet is bigger than my bedroom, and it's less than
the place I'm living in now. Am I living in the wrong town?
Including the cactii.
Typical traffic in tucson. Note the BMW M3 $50K,
the GMC Yukon XL aka a Suburban $40K, and the Lexus.
Note the construction going on. The streets wide
enough for three lanes in each direction (you did notice that there
are three signals on that intersection) Doesn't happen in my town.
Note to self
If for some reason I do chose to move out here,
please make sure to get at least a semi-custom house. I might get
stuck in Stepford otherwise.
