12/08/23 To the border

I took my time, no need to rush with the easy schedule I’ve given myself. I spent the ride to the border repacking, second guessing and questioning everything about this trip. 

I took a room at the Motel 6 near the border. San Ysidro was a happening place, people bustling everywhere and feeling very prosperous. I had some street tacos for a practice dinner and walked over to check out the pedestrian crossing for tomorrow. 

Oh, for life to be this simple
