I spent some time with The Travelers at Venice beach, CA. A gang of homeless young hippy-chic, urban gorillas in camo shorts and TJ hoodies with carefully considered, naturally occurring disheveled hair dos that kids in the Palisades drop hot dollars to chemically configure. They’d all been through a lot in the first two decades of their lives. They all converge at a drop in center in Venice operated by a non profit called Stand Up For Kids L.A.
