This post is entirely dedicated to the cats, dogs, and babies I have encountered on this tour so far. Brother Mitya’s cat, Marina the dog from Santa Cruz, and Hannah!  Cute overload.

Full of fried comfort food, we rushed over to the Smell to make it in time to load-in. Jim had warned me about roads being chaotic because of some festival downtown, but I didn’t realize that it would block off a million streets surrounding the Smell. We still got there in time, but had to […]
