Aah it's been so long! I was in Atlanta for a zine fest this last weekend, but am home now. Let's just recap that stuff first because it's most interesting.
I stayed with my friends Ashton and Rachel, who are both vegan and really smart and amazing people. Rachel is also an incredible cook. Saturday morning (the morning of the zine fest) she made monkey bread, a gooey sweet tear-away biscuity bread.
THEN, at about 10:30, Rachel and I went to a 24 hour Korean spa! You get a pair of shorts and a shirt and can walk around going into a bunch sauna rooms embedded with different crystals and minerals! There was also an ice room we lasted about 3 minutes in, despite the heat outside. At the end of it, we got butt naked with a bunch of strangers and got into some heated pools (and a cold one!) It was amazing. We floated home at 2:30 in the morning and I fell right asleep. I tried to channel those blissed out vibes for the flight back Monday afternoon.
I am writing this, so obviously I landed safely. Thank you SO so much to Rachel and Ashton for feeding, housing, driving me around, and for talking about overthrowing capitalism. The South is a really interesting place...slower and quieter. I'd like to continue getting to know it and its vegans and radicals.
