For the heck of it, a female associate and I decided to bounce out of Anaheim at the end of the last show, rent a car and drive to San Diego to get a couple extra days in what we had heard was a pretty cool city and I'm pretty glad we did as it also basically gave us a three day weekend. During that time, we got to see some exotic animals at the world famous San Diego Zoo:
|Because, of course, I don't see enough Elephants during the work week...|
|My Humps, My Humps, My Humps, My Humps - Check it out!|
Rooms here were about $18 a night. We considered checking in, then we decided it was time to take a break from the tequila shots as we were obviously feeling their effects.
This is the arch, which apparently was supposed to be a tourist attraction at some point, why anybody wants to rip off tourist ideas from St. Louis is anybody's guess, but hey, at least the food was great:
And a day spent at Sea World San Diego (because between working in a circus and going to the zoo, we hadn't seen enough exotic animals):
The entire trip, gas + car + hotel, etc. really only ran me about $300-400, which I consider well worth it given the amount I got to see and experience that I wouldn't have if we would have stayed on the train. Since I have no idea when I'll get to return to San Diego, I thought the days off and extra sightseeing was well worth it.
