Joe Street is a musician who plays acoustic guitar and the bass guitar in a band called Möbius Strip. “So happy to help you Lena : )”. He drove extra miles to get me through the area where there were no shoulders on the road. He told that every day he must do something nice for others, and here am I.

Teresa, Nat and their daughter. I slept in a hammock on this porch, smelling mimosa tree. Nat’s hobby was making wine, and we enjoyed it with a conversation.
