pretty much the only photo I took in SF while trying to sleep in this park. Jet lag was heavy this time around for some reason and sleep was very difficult.
Sammy's apartment in Portland where I stayed for a few days. I was still getting only about 2 hours of sleep per night/day. While I was in Portland there was also an E-Coli outbreak in the water which caused my already delusional brain to panic further. I basically sat on that couch and listened to my new Jon Hassell record most of the time.
when I did make it out of the house we visited Sammy's friends up in the hills.
