sail to the moon4/16/2012
A few days ago we drove to Santa Barbara for a much anticipated Radiohead concert. I used to see a lot of gigs, but now I find myself only reserving the time for a special few. Although I've been to Santa Barbara on many occasions before, this excursion felt entirely different because it was gray and rainy. The beach was an afterthought and our dispositions were relaxed. I had to bring out my winter wear; a mustard yellow wool dress and an old furry hat. Eventually, we walked the main boulevard and found a warm spot for brunch.
Vanessa and I had a childhood favorite, Mexican hot chocolate, which tasted so authentic. If you've never tried it before, it tastes of cinnamon and spice. We would boil milk on the stove and then dissolve large chocolate tablets to make it - so delicious!
Donald and I. We spoke of many things, like the last time we all saw Radiohead together in Paris. It feels like aeons ago. It was the perfect reason to hop on a plane and our first time overseas. So much has changed since then and I grew so much from the experience.
And then we were off! The concert was held in an open air arena, which meant that we had to stand in the rain wearing ponchos. We laughed a lot and felt incredibly silly wearing plastic over our clothes. It was fantastic of course and I can't wait to do it again.
