i've been here for a week and have stomped old ground, cruised with old friends, stuffed my face chicago-style. now im ready for a cleanse and some good old western hippiedom. im flying back to san francisco in 2 hours, the first time back in three months! wow! im quite excited....although it means i need to hunker down and get a job. oh well, travels are over, big things are ahead! see you soon!
