Viva California

I never thought the Inland Empire was interesting at all. Actually aside from the mountains where I live, I hate the I.E. But then again I've lived in ugly parts of it and never really did much exploring. Fortunately my friend Kishor invited us down to hang out with him for the evening and played tour guide. Here's some sites around Riverside. This will be a two part post.

The old Fox Theatre that they're putting back together to get it up and running again.

This photo was taken in the back patio of a place called Tio's Tacos in downtown Riverside. They're a little family owned taco shop that has a back patio where the owner shows off his artwork that he makes from found and discarded objects. The whole back patio is an experience rather than a gallery, and the little pathways he's built around the art encourages the patrons to become part of the display. They also host and cater parties and weddings, and have an on site chapel made from discarded beer bottles. The owner was there enjoying our reactions to his work, so cool :)
