Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
model diary, great overview, thanks montereyan!

i was fortunate enough to live and work in california for 6 months, living in s. cruz, and bopping down to L.A. (via esalen and H101!) to massage in beverly hills.

very nice period, amazing coast, wonderful counterculture.

trips to s. jose were a reality check...airport-sized parking lots filled with new tanks.

or over to watsonville, where the immigrants lived, so s. cruz stayed WASP-y. only thing i didn't like about s. cruz, everything else was stellar.

inland, it was redneck madness...modesto, bakersfield...shudder...

did some time in the seventies in marin and mendocino too, very wild woods living.

lovely shot of the bay!
