Now we are beginning to recognize people in ABQ! My God, have we stayed too long?? We have decided to stay here until friday and the reason for that is that the workshop will probably have done the conversion of the AC by then. The workshop owner is a really great guy married to a Croatian girl (family of yours, Dijana)?? 😉

Glutenfree Belgian waffles
Today we had breakfast around the corner, at Le Peep, and they had glutenfree waffles? Jippi!! I had one with strawberries and whipped cream and I ate it all. Mmmmmmmmmm!!!

After the breakfast we took a city tour at the ABQ Trolley Tour Co. It was a great tour, I can really recommend it to everyone that wants to get to know ABQ. Great driver and great guide. The guide asked at the beginning of the tour if there was anyone interested in Breaking Bad and we, The Anderssons, shouted YEEEES!! So then he talked quit a bit about Breaking Bad and the film team, the film sites etc, and pointed out Jesses house and some more spots to us!!! GREAT!!

BUT…for you real Breaking Bad fans out there, the Trolley tour is NOT the tour to take. What you should do is plan in advance and book the RV tour. This is THE Breaking Bad tour and it takes about 3,5 hours. They go to all the filming sites in ABQ and you all go in….YEPP, you go in the same kind of RV that Jesse and Walt did. So this, I am sure, must be the ultimate BB tour. Unfortunatly we have a hard time planning ahead since we:

1) actually don’t want to plan a lot ahead
2) want to be flexible in where to stop and for how long
3) have a %\*^#{^>%#< car we cannot rely on

so we were not able to book this tour. We hoped, we tried, and we failed!!! 😦

Later on that day we took our car and went to Los Pollos Hermanos to get the Gustavo Fring kind of feeling. The restaurant they used is called Twisters and you can really get the feeling there. It looks quit the same as in the film.

US restrooms
Speaking of something completly different, I both hate and love the restrooms in US. They have standardized them so they almost look the same, all of them. The good thing is that they, 99% of the time, have seat covers inside and that is really great (you cannot find that in Sweden). You do not have to build your own special kind of toilet seat cover! 😉

The bad thing is that there is no privacy what so ever in those small spaces. Gaps everywhere, in the corners, around the door, above, below, everywhere so anyone can look right into the rooms. I don’t like it! AT ALL. 😦

Loud and noisy alarm from my phone
Around 18.30 it started to rain and it came quit a bit of rain (which resulted in us not going to see Walt and Skylers house today, t’was too wet). Here they send out general alarms to the phones, so all of a sudden your phone starts to make a hell of a noice. Today the alarm was a Flash Flood Warning.

Phone warnings

The day we went from Las Vegas to LA there was an amber alert. Some “not completly sane” grandmother had snatched the family baby, and then they sent out the alarm, together with the description of the car she drove, to all phones.

Quit smart, I would say. Why not do the same thing in Sweden, area regulated of course. The alarm concerning upper Norrland shouldn’t go off in Stockholm.
