With my days in Savannah quickly passing me by, I finally went to the 'part time' section of Craigslist and was amazed at my own stupidity for not coming here before.  In a matter of 10-15 minutes, I had applied to these two gems:

Now, I am no Rhode Scholar, but even I think I would be more than qualified to be not a Valet, but a Valet Attendant.  That means getting the valets coffee and parking the Geo's (no offense to Geo owners) while the actual Valet's park the Beamers and such.  However, no calls for either of these two yet, but keep your fingers crossed!

Seeing that most of the day was a tad bit chilly, I spent most of my time conducting business in my home and relaxing to the sound of my iPod on my hosts stereo.  One of the luxuries of being in a home such as this is the creature comforts including refrigeration, flushing toilet and electricity!  However, after about three hours of feeling like I was in solitary confinement, I had to break free and make my way to the Post  Office to renew my passport.  With my $110 (plus taxes and fees) ready to pay for the money order, I filled out the necessary paperwork and slid my book into that envelope to see it returned with an older Traveler, Aaron C.'s new picture and blank visa pages.  All the more to fill!

With my hunger for adventure at an all time high after my Sunday night relaxation session, my old friend 'D' let me know that I could join in on her walking Ghost Tour at 8:00PM.  It was to last until 9:30PM at which point, I would make a crucial decision for the remainder of the night.  But first...

Those are some well-dressed ghosts on this tour.

Nothing here, just though it was a good picture.

With the tour coming to an end, I made my way to Moon River Brewery (try any of their local beers, mmm) to check out the score of the National Championship Game.  But something was pulling me in another direction (some spirit perhaps?), and that brought me to the grand decision to head to Live Wire to see a band known as EOTO.

Steady hand...
Think house beats meets a great light show and you have...

This is probably how most of the crowd felt even without shaky picture taking.

Ooooohhhh, lights...

Was pretty rockin'!

With one foot in front of the other, I danced the night away until the lights came back on to the beats of EOTO (created by two members of String Cheese Incident) and their funky lights.  I believe that the Band of Horses show (and the National Championship Game) probably kept most that would have been at this show away, but that just made for more dancing room.  

As we all made our way out to River St., one thing was for certain... these people should not be driving anywhere!  But that's the good thing of Savannah, there seems to be more cabs than Atlanta so we are all in good hands.  Or at least until we get to our destination and actually have to pay them.  

The Bumping Beats Traveler,
Aaron C.

Aaron's Tip from the Road:  Choosing what to do for the evening can be tough if faced with multiple choices.  I usually choose 'C'.
