OK, in last night's blog, I quite disrespectfully referred to my motel as a "craphole." But this afternoon, as I strolled past the sun-bleached shantytown pictured above, I suddenly had new appreciation for my humble Coachella trucker motel, with its 28.8 dialup modem and its postage-stamp-sized towels and its enter-without-flipflops-at-your-own-risk shower stalls and its cigarette-burnhole-riddled sheets. Hey, at least my craphole room has a decently functioning air-conditioning unit. Look at the hapless, clearly clinically insane Coachella campers here: Obviously I could have it much, much worse.
