reno part three




Slot machines stole my money.



The mysterious Peter dance dance dancing.

I have no idea what I'm singing here, but it must be silly.




Peter serenading a lady on the sidewalk.



Reno is: smokey bars, sweaty bangs, Peter's finger sneaking into the corner of every other photo, slot machines called Maltese Fortune and Kitty Glitter, too much air conditioning, little kids hanging out at arcades until one in the morning, air hockey showdowns, two showers every day, SPF 100, strip clubs called Wild Orchid, chicken wing festivals, karaoke DJs named Isaac, two cameras in my bag at all times, amazing motel signs, lonely side streets, talkative locals, the best antique stores ever, buffets, old men in western shirts smoking cigars, quite an adventure.

Oh, sounds amazing! And I hear you on the sweaty bangs ... this is usually why I grow my bangs out in summer.

i'm sure some of these photos were taken on different days, but i kind of love the idea of you doing a wardrobe change during karaoke. i foresee a cirus, circus date in our near future - the maltese fortune said so!

Your blog is so cute. I adore this post. From someone who used to live in Reno and still lives very close, you are rather correct in what Reno is. I am glad you had an adventure. Your pics are great!
