Looking to warm up in south-western US, I made a stop to visit Phoenix Arizona and experience some of the infamous desert scenery. Although I only made a stop for a couple of days, and those were around Christmas time where almost everything is closed down, I was able to see a few interesting things and get a taste of a part of the US very different than my own up north.

 

As a quick preview to what I’ve visited and seen, here’s my ‘visions’ of Phoenix Arizona…

That wasn’t the only surprising Hannukiah for Hannukkah, there was one also in front of the capitol building. How odd! I had no idea Phoenix had such a dominant Jewish community…
