Field trip

In all the years I lived in Southern California I had never visited the Watts Towers. So I was up early and on my way before there was too much freeway traffic.

I knew beforehand the grounds were closed because of preservation and repair work. I didn’t now that much of it would be covered in scaffolding. But of course. Still, it was cool.

The most unexpected thing was the security guard—a Latino Jew, wearing a yarmulka and blowing a shofar to welcome the Sabbath morning. I love LA.
