I will only give limited details.  I am meeting with someone whose biography I am helping to write.  We have been talking on Facebook for a year.  The only clue I shall give you is he’s on Travel Channel.

He will be attending the following conference at UCLA https://sites.google.com/site/multilingualinstitutioncontext/program

 

I’m taking the train there and will be staying with an old friend, who now lives in South Central Los Angeles.  She lives five blocks from the infamous Florence and Normandie corner for those who remember the 1992 riots in Los Angeles.  I’ll take notes of what I see.  There will be a bunch of posts.

I’m taking the Sunset Limited Amtrak train, which is overnight from Tucson.  I am going to sleep and waking up in Los Angeles.  I have been on this train before, but the last time was when I still lived back East and it was April, 1996.    I will have my computer with me and may post from the train.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
