The Journey Begins — Coffee shop, Bakersfield
Our journey of nearly 2,000 miles — 1,967 to be exact — began at about 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 16. After traveling about two hours from our home in downtown Los Angeles, we arrived at our first destination on the Wall Street project: Bakersfield. Before getting started, though, we needed a hearty breakfast. We chose the 24th Street Cafe because, well, it had good reviews on Yelp. The food was awesome, and I was struck by the way the early-morning light hit the sign.
