What a wonderful day we had today with the L.A. Rooted crew. Today we biked to Chavez Ravine, which had some dangerous streets, (cough, cough Sunset Blvd.), and also a few tough hills. Although my bike’s gears were acting weirder than Willy Wonka, the ride to Chavez Ravine as great. Then, we went on a little hike WITH OUR BIKES, and we were on a trail with a great view. On this trail we had an advanced talk about gender!!! Yay!!! We all had a partner to do a small project on a gender definition. After presenting our small projects we had lunch.
Lunch was excellent. We had a vegetarian ceviche with tostadas. After lunch was free time, where we all did our own little thing. I sang a few songs with a friend and laid on the grass. Chavez Ravine/ Elysian Park really is beautiful. The wind was making the leaves on the trees sway back and forth. The sun was out and it was comfortably warm. The sky a nice beautiful blue, and the grass was green and vibrant.
A little later, we had a talk about commodity, featuring a banana. Then, we applied what we learned to interview people at the Silverlake Farmer’s Market. My group and I interviewed a person named Brooke about yellow peaches. Then, as usual we presented the answers to the questions we were supposed to ask.
The ride back to Camp HQ was both hard and awesome. Only because I love a challenge. Rio had finally fixed my gears and things were even better. Back at Camp HQ we talked with Rio about consent. Whilst, I kept eating the Nature Valley Bars…it is actually a very important thing to talk about. That was our Week 2 Tuesday and overall it was very enjoyable.
