Dear followers of hmm... It's unlikely that I'll be near any WI-FI for the next 7 days. That means no blogging for me for the first time in 1.5 years! That said, I hope to return from the desert with enough pics, videos and legendary tales to fill my blog for years to come. Till then, keep rocking and stay classy. I'll see you and the rest of the world again soon enough. Much love. Peace!

So we were on our way to Golden Gate Park to spend the day poking around there. They have the most amazing Japanese Tea Gardens there not to mention great walking trails that lead to the ocean. But to get there you have to go through The Haight, a legendary suburb of SF where it's been said the 60's truly began. After all, The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane lived and played there along with countless hippies and flower power nuts. So you can understand how we got completely distracted and spent the whole day going from shop to shop, Bohemian cafe to head shop, etc... We hit Amoeba Music, an amazing music store where you can literally buy any album ever. Seriously, they have millions of CD's, vinyls, tapes (yes tapes), DVD's and BLU-RAYS. They also have those beautifully designed original and reprinted concert posters you see in Poster design books on coffee tables in artsy people's homes. Anyway, we were there a while followed by a walk through the street art gallery that is Haight St. Almost every block has murals and or graffiti well worth documenting. There are also amazing vintage stores everywhere. So we bought some ridiculous gear for Burning Man that will hopefully make us stand out a little more. Think Mad Max meets Braveheart. So yeah, the Haight is truly magical. It still feels trapped in the 60's with 2011 tourists filtering through now and again. There are still hippies singing for their supper on the streets, watching people like me go into Ben & Jerry's and eat Phish Food. Mmm mmm mmm... Silly hippies.
