May 23

Hoping it is not a harbinger of what is to come, it rained hard all night and through the first part of the morning. Certain to be some muddy trails, but today is a day to read and write, waiting for Bennett to arrive late this evening. Wandered the town a bit, stopped by information center and Migros grocery store. Spent the afternoon in a bar reading Bruno Latour and working on an essay, then the evening watching the people stream off each successive train until the one bringing Bennett arrived. I had not seen him since we had hiked part of the PCT in August of 2015. Obviously a joyful reunion, with non-stop talking.
