I made it back to LA last night. Back in Mark and I's old apartment on Corinth. Things haven't changed much. The weather is still nice (about 65F), the women are still very pretty and there are still Mexican day laborers standing on every corner, juggling soccer balls while waiting for their next job. I greatly admire those guys. They are given very little in life, work exceptionally hard, live humbly, don't complain or beg, send most of their earnings back to their families in Mexico and are usually really good soccer players.
It's good to be back.
