Greetings from the Liesl & Po tour, Days 1-3!
So far this week, I have learned several invaluable life lessons:
1--Children are adorable. Also, children in California are better-mannered than children in New York!
2--Ackee is a delicious kind of Jamaican vegetable that grows in a pod, and very much resembles scrambled eggs in looks and texture, although not in taste.
3--The Hotel Palomar in Los Angeles makes delicious homemade pickles.
4--I am not a morning person.
Okay, so, one of these things I already knew, and two of them are food related, but DON'T JUDGE ME! So far, I'm having a great time on tour: at the B & N in Huntington Beach, CA, I got to see the west coast side of my family, which was very special; plus, I got to leave a note for my best friend Elizabeth Miles, who was visiting the store the following day with Becca Fitzpatrick and Moira Young!
In NoCal, I visited a school literally nestled in the midst of a magical, mystical redwood forest. It made me a) want to return to being a child just so I could attend and b) aspire to write an elvish fantasy set in just such a place. Kind of. More the former than the latter, actually.
Anyway, check out these assorted pics and keep on following my adventures on the road...
