New year's day is a big deal here in Pasadena. The Tournament of Roses Parade. The Rose Bowl Game. Just three more days.
I might see one myself some day, though I haven't done so yet. Crowds, noise and cold are not my cup of tea.
Alas, I blaspheme.
At least for the next few days I live in "the other Pasadena"--the one seeking a route to the grocery store without bumping into a parade float, hiking in the mountains north of town on game day, and looking for a restaurant so far from Colorado Blvd. that only the locals know about it.
And that's fine. In fact, it's downright fabulous. I want everyone to have a wonderful time! I look forward to the pictures!
