road trip 2k10! (part one)

One nice thing about being a gardener is that you have a lot less work in the winter! One nice thing about having friends all over the country is that you get to visit them! Kristin, DeCarol and I organized a road trip that started December 8 and ended the 21st. The objectives: see lots of things, go lots of places, and get our friend Meg back east for the holidays. 

We ended up eating dinner by candlelight in the woods, talking hip hop with philosophers, staying with long lost high school friends, visiting a cathedral of junk, falling in love with New Orleans, being interviewed for a documentary about pie shops, breaking into my sister's house, spending a whole day at the Civil Rights Institute, seeing mermaids at the largest aquarium in the world, eating delicious food with friends and family, meeting a few farm animals, viewing an amazing painting in a janitor's closet, and arriving just in time to spend the holidays with family.
