Mexica New Year, Los Angeles

25 03 2009

It was another journey back to Cali.  I took a 15 hour Greyhound Bus ride back from Arizona.  I actually borded the bus in Gallup, New Mexico, just because that was the it was more convenient.

I traveled all night and slept most of the way.  If you have ever take the Greyhound you know how lame it can be.  I was so uncomfortable for my ride, but was so tired I slept through most of it.

I arrived in L.A. in time to make it to the Anti-War demonstration organized by A.N.S.W.E.R. LA.  It was a good demonstration and it felt good to express my self in the heart of Hollywood as tourist stood on the sidewalk staring.

After the demo. I jumped back on the Metro and headed over to Self-Help Graphics on Cesar Chavez Ave.  There were plenty of people there and at least 100 danzantes.  It was good seeing the Mexicas holding it down.  I also ran into a few of the homies from San Jose Calpulli Tonaleque and other folks from around Cali.

After eating some delicious nopal salad and hanging out I got a ride with some friends to check out the another event on Olympic Blvd.  It was a free show outdoors in a restaurant parking lot.  We stayed til about 2am then I finally got to sleep for a few hours at a old friends house in Highland Park.

The next morning I was at it again on the Greyhound Bus back to San Diego to make it for our Teatro Izcalli rehersal.
