I was curious to see how the company works that organized some of the events I have been attending, so I decided to volunteer for them. I got to meet some very cool people, and for the first time, had a walkie-talkie attached to my belt and an ear-piece in my ear to be able to communicate with the rest of the team. That in itself made my day. I ended up directing traffic, which I had never done before, and it was everything I expected it to be :D. Really.
I mean, people know where to go. At some point, I was just having fun with it – directing them to one parking lot or another (“das verdammte Ding passt :D “), and eventually, the lot was full and the sun started to set. So there I was, standing in a dark parking lot without a flashlight, and directing… well, nothing really.
But I went around the corner to discover a magical view of Downtown Los Angeles and a sunset behind the palm trees. That and the walkie-talkie made this experience completely worth it.
