Los Angeles

Yesterday I visited the Austrian embassy in LA to apply for a short-term tourism visa. The combination of red-eye flight, public bus system, oppressive heat, and nightmarish human interaction trainwreck at the embassy left me feeling less than ideal. But THEN I schlepped my exhausted, sweaty, humiliatingly backpacked self past a strange suburban street corner in Santa Monica- and encountered a MAGIC fruit stand. The young man running it sprinkled my fresh mango, pineapple, and watermelon assortment with lemon juice and chili sauce! It was fantastic! My faith was restored in humanity. UPDATE: I think I should have said “My faith in humanity was restored.” For the record
