Back Home

Back in Los Angeles.

Time to figure out what's next.

In the meantime, enjoying this.

Musical Monday

Finally got around to listening to this album.  Well, maybe only the first half of it. I'm hooked on Eavesdrop, but the whole thing is wonderful.

Happy Friday!

The next night we headed to Picca, which has been on my list for awhile. It's Peruvian food with a Japanese twist. We had a hard time narrowing down our choices, but our waiter gave us some great recommendations and got us some delicious mocktails.

I love anything with ponzu.

Now to the heavier rice dishes. Kind of …
