But I didn’t go to Boise for the climate. I went to visit my sister. My sister and I are only 17 months apart, and we were very close growing up. We shared a room when were young, and had a lot of good times.
As we have grown older, it’s been more difficult to stay close. Thirteen years ago my sister and her family moved to Boise. She is very happy there and has built a nice life for herself and her family. Unfortunately, we don’t see each other very often, so I decided it was time for a visit.
Besides, I got to travel ALONE. When I arrived my sister picked me up and took me for drive in her home town. We had a nice lunch in Boise downtown, BODO. Then we went to Basque market on this little street that has a Basque community, because apparently there are a lot of Basque people in Boise. Who knew?
Then we did what all sisters should do…we went shopping.
My sister is a star shopper. I do not like shopping. But I watched and shopped along with her. It was a quick trip but a nice visit…eating, shopping, movies and more shopping.
We even bought the same sweater. Good thing we live in different states because we won’t be spotted wearing it together.
