Day 3 (Not nearly as original as previous)

Virginia City Travel Blog

 › entry 3 of 7 › view all entries

Today is our sidetrip day. Virginia City is one of the most historic little cities in the west and is only about 30 miles south of Reno. Dating back to early mining discoveries and the boom which brought in much of the population of northern Nevada, this little town has many historic places and attractions.

The last time we were in Virginia City we didn't have a good camera with us, so no pictures.  This time we do.

(I know we said originally we'd be going to Lake Tahoe today, but we changed our minds.)

Tonight, dinner was at John Ascuaga's Nugget. The Rotisserie Buffet.

One of most remarkables facts who lived in the trip to California was the visit to Virginia City. As you know, the limit of speed of the vehicles is very low, 15 miles?. Well I dont see that signal and was slow, but more 15. Suddenly, policeman signals and stop my car, without know what is the problem. STAY ON CAR!! STAY ON CAR!! voice a tipical policeman west american, a boy gun (un pistolero, jeje), a muscle, with moustaches. When, after a minute, he look at your system on board, and then the change, smiles, good words, and ask ¿dont look you the signal..etc etc.
Now I smile, but in that moment glugggg..
(sorry my english) Saludos.
