Dan surprised me with tickets to Cirque Du Soleil in Spokane, Washington. The biggest part of the gift was the driving! Six hours there and six back. In a day. He is a great guy, eh?
We stopped off to visit the roadside falls that we missed on our trip to Missoula. I got lots of lovely pictures. It is tucked away next to a small ravine where an abandoned car and one-night stands hang.
We arrived in Spokane feeling energized and happy. We ate at PF Changs, which is one of our favorite restaurants with gluten free foods. I was brave and ordered a new menu item. Big mistake! It was the Caramel and Mango Chicken. Sounds sweet and tangy, no? No. It as super crazy hot and had a burnt flavor. I hated it. I ate as much as I could stand, gulping down water. I told the waitress that I was unhappy with the dish and felt that the description was misleading. They were nice enough to give me a free dessert, so that made it all better.
There was an Occupy Protest happening at the same time we arrived. I managed to get a few pictures before they marched off somewhere. There was an eclectic collection of signs, disabled veterans, and young men with their shirts off. Not particularly inspiring, I have to say.
We found out where you should go if your stripper gets in trouble...
