The Desert Is Alive with the Sound of Music

We went, we saw, we survived. Coachella 2006, alas, has come and gone. The experience was simultaneously exhausting and exhilarating. Above all, it was thoroughly memorable.

Sure, it got off to an inauspicious start when I got stuck on a conference call and missed my flight. But what's an adventure without an adventure? It all worked out anyhow. All I had to do was sit around for a couple of hours at the airport and catch a flight into LAX instead of SNA. Still managed to get in before In-N-Out closed for the night.

We got up the next day at a decent hour, scarfed down some yummy Taiwanese food, and then mozied on down to Indio. The temperature was a non-fatal 95 degrees. The sky was a non-imposing bed of blue. And the music -- ah, yes -- the music.
