Life in Colombia and everything that goes with it

Relaxing into Flagstaff

Upon arrival in Flagstaff, Arizona, I felt the vibe.

That vibe that makes you want to stay longer and check it all out.

Downtown Flagstaff is so quaint and filled with cafes, restaurants, bars and breweries, outdoors stores, art galleries and people. I guess as a jumping off point for the Grand Canyon, it sees it’s fair share of visitors, but there is so much fun to be had wandering the streets and photographing the aging accommodation signs.

I spent the day wandering the streets soaking up the atmosphere, talking to people, buying vintage dresses and after discovering a festival on Saturday, decided to stay a couple more days.

A major freight route cuts through Flagstaff and more than 100 freight trains per day pass through. I counted one train while sitting at pub with 4 locomotives at the front, two at the back and 169 carriages. Most of the carriages had two containers stacked on top of each other. So much freight. I think the trains I love the most are the ones transporting semi truck trailers on the carriages. I had never seen that before, but I guess it makes sense.

With a population of 65,000 it reminds me of home and I look forward to seeing what else the place has in store for me.
