Finally! the sun!
on a side note- speaking of making me immensely happy.... the place i'm staying has an outdoor shower. bamboo all around, water hot enough to peel skin, palms and banana tree leaves hanging down on you. tropical showering paradise. one of my favorite things, i think.
the funny story about the painting above is that every morning i run down here to see if its paintable and theres a beach full of people laying in the sand where they slept all night. there are tons of people down here that really just stay out under palm trees, under bridges and other vagrant camps where they band together for safety. i guess the keys is probably one of the best places in the country if you dont have an established residence or want to "fly under the radar".
people come here from every state in the nation trying to outrun the cold. hey thats me too isnt it? :D
