Where I stayed
The Parkside Inn Motel - $42. A dump...old dump

Flag of United States  , California
Tuesday, October 7, 2008

Up early and packed our equipment. Its a motel night today...already too many days out in the fresh so looking forward to a shower and some warm dinner. So off we drove to the closest "big circle" on the map which was Fresno.

To be sincere, and although we read it is the the richest county of California (need to check this fact out)...its a dump. There is obvious poverty all over the place, and tramp after tramp, bumping into wino's and drug addicts. Not a nice place "my friends" (quoting McCain now). Actually most of the areas where quite scary and the public library was the second home for tramps.

Ironically the computer lab in the library is packed all day long (requiring computers to be booked in advance) while there is hardly no one looking at books, etc. Its all tramps and young kids.

Last night we watched the debate McCain vs Obama on TV and failed to be impressed by any of them. McCain still fails to appear strong, and Obama fails to say anything at all. Looks like it will be Obama winning and that USA will become United Socialist States of America....

By the way...good we left Yosemite as there was a landslide close to where we were camping. No deaths.
