My Week in Photos: March 31 – April 6
Volunteer day downtown, hiking with new peeps, more Japanese snacks, and a week that ended in an amazing, tiring and surprisingly under planned (but well done) road trip! Enjoy! (Poll at the end)

Starting the week in downtown Los Angeles

Monday was Day of Service at work. We had the option to spend the morning and afternoon volunteering. I was with a group who went to Inner City Arts. An oasis of free arts education for underserved LAUSD schools.

There were a few on-site projects, I worked on cleaning out and prepping the garden for new plantings.

WORM POOP. Very elegant.

This flavor was recommended to me. He said it was salmon roe. But to me it was a bit more tomato tasting. Anybody know?

The hike was definitely more of a running trail. Dodging runners and real athletes constantly.
