Here I sit in a ratty hotel in this miserable desert town. I have been invited to stay in Los Angeles by an old friend. I took him up on it. I rested in bed most of the day occasionally purchasing several items that I knew cost more in the City of Angels. For some reason I am dog tired. I'm going to watch that Star Trek episode The Cage before retiring. My bus leaves at 7am tomorrow and arrives the following day at 9am. That's a brutal trek. But, for $50 I can't complain. I am taking a Mexican bus route and from what the tattooed, snaggle toothed cholo from behind the counter showed me, the bus will be pack. So, I asked for a 5:30 wake up call and then it's off to Los Angeles and new adventures!
