Flagstaff is a city located in northern Arizona, South of the Grand Canyon and north of Phoenix. Coming back from the Flagstaff Meteor Cretor we drove into Flagstfaff downtown. We already took a look on the internet on Jasmyn's Iphone and searched for a hotel. We found a nice hostel in the downtown of Flagstaff. It was only $40 for one night for one private room. The hostel was right next to some bars and restaurants. We checked in the room and went for some food. We ended up at Beaver street 'brews&cues' a nice restaurant with there own beer brewing fabric into it. We had to waith a couple of minutes before we got seated. We order food and ofcourse beer. This was the first time we had too show our passports to drink a beer, never had to do that in my life before.
After finishing up we went to some other bars and had some more drinks. After a couple of hours we walked back to the hostel. On our way we stopped at the old railway station in town were the Amtrak train just arrived, we stopped for a couple of minutes and watched the people getting of. It was pretty damn cold by that time!! In the hostel we chatted to some other people wich were staying there and after half 'n hour we went to bed.
In the morning we got up about 8 and headed for breakfest. It was a tiny room in the hostel were we had breakfest with a couple of other people. Breakfest was not much more than toast and coffee or thee, including some apples. It was fine. After breakfest we left and hit the road again for Page Arizona.
Interesting fact of Flagstaff is that the city is situated 7.000 feet above sealevel. We noticed that are tubes and stuff we brought was all swollen up from the thin air outside pretty much fun to see.
