Of Heat and Humanity

The heat slipped into Los Angeles, catching us unaware. Was that the inkling of a coming heat wave, or just a warm breeze? Were those clouds in the distance? Surely, the morning fog meant a mild day? By the time we noticed it, the heat had already stomped out the lingering fog and dried up the morning dew.

Memorable Moments From a Blank Itinerary

I peered down at the fried fish whose eyes bore back up into me and knew right then this trip was one for the books. I was accompanied by my newspaper advisor, three fellow reporters, and a chaperone, all of us sitting inside BCD Tofu House, a restaurant in the Koreatown portion of Los Angeles.

Los Angeles, California Attractions

From Disneyland to movie star footprints, Koreatown to the Mexican enclave at Olvera Street, here's a look at the must-sees in Los Angeles, California. The City of Angels is truly one of our favorite family destinations -- fun, exciting, cultural, sunny and beachy at the same time. While it's struggling to conquer environmental issues with a recently released mass transit light rail and more public buses, however, most families will want a car to get around.

Tumbleweeds and Little Seeds

When you think of any national park, you probably think about a place with bright green foliage and craggy waterfalls scattered over a few acres of land. In Joshua Tree National Park however, that expectation could not be further from the truth. The whole space seems to rumble with a slow rhythm that cracks the dry air and brings life out from every craggy rock, doing so in an utter and deafening silence. It wasn’t supposed to be anything special, just a token hike for the historical enthusiast.

Winter 2014- Picked up a Decal from SoCal

After living in this state for two years, it was time.

It was time to head South.

Past fruit groves and expansive fields along the road, past the cliffs and turning roads of San Diego, past the Navy aircraft of the USS Midway Museum, past the small beaches crooning carpe diem, past smoke blown from houses in mouths, past smoggy clouds above jaded crowds

Southern California had rhythm, had psychedelic beats of bodies swaying along streets, and had cynicism tinged with idealism.
