We didn't have internet access last night, so no updates. But here's some quick impressions about Salt Lake City. Beautiful city, surrounded by mountains on one side and a stinky lake (sorry, but the Great Salt Lake really does smell!) on the other. We did the tourist thing in Temple Square, the two-square-block center of the Mormon religion. The place has its charms, but Mark and I were put off by the persistent Mormon guides who kept approaching us. They were smiling and friendly, yes, but their friendliness bugged me because I knew it was only because they really, really hoped to convert us.
Hopefully we didn't insult any Mormons, but Brennan striking a Buddhist pose in front of the Mormon Temple was pretty funny.
