If you have been reading the information on this website no doubt you understand that we are fans of artwork. One of the most enjoyable things to do is to travel to different areas and visit local galleries to see what kind of artwork is being displayed. Sometimes traveling doesn’t go always as planned. We were enjoying a wonderful vacation in Chandler Arizona when are car stopped working and we needed to hire a tow truck. That definitely puts a damper on our visiting of art galleries and drinking great coffee in the beautiful Desert weather during the winter. I can tell you that I would much rather be stranded and in need of a towing company during the winter in Arizona as opposed to the summer. We have been there in the summer and heat and hot really don’t describe the intensity!
To make a long story short we had parked in downtown Chandler and had gone to a wonderful coffee shop call Peixoto Coffee on Boston St where they serve Brazilian coffee and has a very European Flair. It very much reminded us of our visits to Italy and how the coffee is prepared there. So as we were walking around enjoying the beautiful scenery and breathing in the Cool Desert Air we noticed quite a few wonderful art galleries. So there was no way that we were going to avoid taking a look at those. After visiting quite a few many of the owners suggested that we take a drive to Scottsdale Arizona because there’s a large number of very high-quality galleries up there. Scottsdale is not too far away from Chandler Arizona, it’s really just a short ride on the freeway.
Tow Truck and Art Work
So we jumped in our car with our directions in hand and the remaining coffee in our coffee cups. Looking forward to having lunch and viewing the wonderful galleries in Scottsdale we embarked on a short excursion. Well, you can guess what happened next, the car stopped working. We were stranded on the freeway. So that’s when we realized, man we really need a towing company now. We’re happy to tell you that we found a wonderful company called Tow Chandler who went above and beyond the call of duty to get our car towed to the repair shop quickly.
It is really nice when you run across people who operate a great towing company and do a good job and care what they do and how it affects their clients.
To make a long story short, thanks to our tow truck driver and his recommendation of a good repair shop our car was not broken for very long. A real plus was it didn’t cost us very much money to get it fixed or to have it towed. I guess we were just kind of lucky that day. No complaints here because when I’m on vacation the last thing I want to deal with is having my car towed and having it repaired and I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels that way.
So we did finally end up in Scottsdale and visited a lot of really great art galleries. There is no shortage of really high-quality ones there. Another real plus was we saw quite a lot of beautiful Indian jewelry made of turquoise and silver. In case you don’t know Phoenix is not that far from the Navajo Indian reservation in northeastern Arizona. Not only that the Hopi reservation is not far away either. So seeing the beautiful artwork and craftsmanship of these Native Americans really help to make our trip.
Not only that but there was quite a lot of New Mexican artwork from the Pueblo Indians or Native Americans from mostly the northern half of New Mexico. One thing that really struck us was the beautiful pottery from the Acoma Pueblo which is just about 40 miles west of Albuquerque along Interstate 40. We have been there before in the past and really appreciated the black-and-white intricate pottery that has helped to make it famous. That is one day that I will never forget walking around on the top of the mesa where Acoma Pueblo is.
So all-in-all our trip to Chandler Arizona was a real success and thanks to our tow truck driver who got us to a great repair shop and a special thanks goes out to those warm and inviting people and owners of the local art galleries that shared that we should go up to Scottsdale and visit those galleries also. It was a memorable experience and we can’t wait to return to the beautiful Phoenix Desert in the wonderful State of Arizona.
