Yesterday, I spent the day lounging in sunny Los Angeles. Ate lunch at the food truck park. Caught a few rays. Did a little shopping. Ate like a local. I even woke up in that dream world today.
Today, after waking up at a God-awful hour, I landed in snowy, ice-ridden Nashville. I was ill prepared and dressed inappropriately when I stepped out of the airport. My car got stuck and my friend Joe had to save the day. While I am happy to be home and cozy up inside, it is literal culture shock.
More to come on the amazing (and elongated!) trip to California when I adjust to this crazy weather! Its been a wild 12 hours, from sunny and 75° to icy and 5°.
