Travel Club

Last night’s speaker at the Travel Club, at the Sangdee Gallery,  was Dorothy Engmann, who is the convener of the group.

She spoke about her recent trip to Santa Fe to visit her daughter who was writing up her thesis there. Together they visited areas surrounding Santa Fe and also had a trip to Las Vegas.

Dorothy is not ony a good speaker, but she has a happy personality and a great sense of humour. Her popularity ensured a big turnout

Her presentation was richly supported with projected photos. Unfortunately, I don’t have access to them so  I had to download some from the web.

Adobe Style Buildings

Santa Fe is the capital of the state of New Mexico. Dorothy outlined the history of the city and spoke of the unique adobe style buildings. The city does not have high rise construction.Here is the Official Santa Fe website.

Las Vegas of course was in complete contrast to Santa Fe. She enjoyed the city but pointed out some of it’s grotesque features. One example was the Heart Attack Grill where burgers came in single, double, triple, and quadruple bypass sizes. Customers over 250 pounds eat free. Dorothy said while she was there a guy weighed in at 260 pounds and all the patrons applauded.
