Day 32- Now
As you know, we made it to San Diego and were welcomed right in by some of our friends here. We made the most of San Diego's beaches but also had the opportunity to work at the San Diego Rescue Mission on friday. This is an incredible organization that houses nearly 200 men and a number of women and children. Everyone who was there was either in a year long program to sobriety or was interning there after they had graduated from the program. Like some of the other organizations we have worked with, this place takes the men in off the streets and gives them a second chance. They prepare them to reenter the working world, much more prepared than before. Our experience working there really reaffirmed what we have been doing on this trip.

We played two concerts in while in San Diego. We stayed with a friends mom, and she was nice enough to open her home to us as a place to stay as well as a venue. We played thursday night for the book club of the woman's house we were staying at. It was a hoot. Our real concert was the next night and was full of old friends. Not only did we get to talk about our trip, but we got to give everyone the chance to learn way more about how to interact and treat homeless individuals. The San Diego Rescue Mission is doing an awesome awareness clinic called Sleepless in San Diego.
