Escondido, where we first arrived on the Greyhound with two bags of clothes and a guitar. We found two jobs a piece within the first week, and swam in the swimming pool between shifts at the Mount Vernon Inn. We walked down the street to see movies and along Mission Ave. for our jobs. The mountains rose above Escondido from the east; you could see them from the streets. Everything smelled of flowers and trees and grilled food.
