Day 27- Un goût

The day begins with the sound of pouring rain banging against the windows. A humid air lingers outside and although the AC keeps the living room cool, you can already feel the humidity creeping into the kitchen. We make some oatmeal, coffee and get some work done in the morning. The plan for today is to meet with my friends…

Southern Hospitality

Come walk with me, not to follow though, because I’m not leading the way. The screen door on the backside of this brick building is our passage into the reenactment of the Goodfellas scene where Henry escorts Karen through the kitchen of the Copacabana night club, except we are in Kenner, LA walking into La Bella’s Catering. Ray Liotta’s character…

Our saving grace was watching Django Unchained on Gomes’ iPhone just before getting into Memphis. To make a long story…

It was a chill day and we just sat in the U-Haul truck cabin laughing about the situation, and talking about the trip and other interesting topics of conversation that…

Day 24 – Right Through Texas

Tensions were a bit high this morning, especially on my side because I was worried about my bike and stressing about time once again. We get ready and I go out to check on my bike’s fluids. I learn that the coolant is fine but the oil is practically non existent. There is some at the bottom but not enough…
