Dive Bars, Deserts, and Comedy

February of 2018, my friend Randy set up a small tour of comedy magic shows for me in Southern Arizona.

Normally with a tour, you want to go and hammer it out as fast as possible in order to cut on expenses. But February is a slower month for me, so I decided to make a vacation out of it!

It was a great decision, I had some wonderful experiences that I'll never forget.

I decided to try Couchsurfing. I got to stay with a delightful girl named Sammy, who has had a lot of interesting experiences despite being young.

Sammy got me into the after-party for the Gem Show. And those guys know how to party! I got to party with people from around the world. Pier, the Frenchmen was particularly charming. There were a lot of Moroccans. After I performed some magic for a group of people, a man hugged me and said something in a language that I couldn't understand. A nearby German man told me that he said that if I were ever in Morocco that I had a protector. I'm not exactly sure what that meant, but I took it as a compliment.
