We head out from Borger, Texas this morning, with our eyes set on Oklahoma City.
We crossed over from East Texas to West Texas. Drove past tornadoes and even ate lunch where the famed “Storm Chasers” stopped the night before while chasing the very storms we were dodging.
There was Mexico, then Santa Fe, then Taos, where we were refused entry into a Buddhist monastery. So much for peace loving.
The Buddhist event foreshadowed our trip to a Lutheran Church in Kit Carson, Colorado that was also a bit unwelcoming.
We don’t usually visit tourist attractions, but had to check out Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, home state of America’s largest evangelical AND Buddhist populations.
New friends in Denver included a popular comedian with cerebral palsy, piano playing homeless people, a waiter with political aspirations and sign wielding women intent on hugging us.
