Video of Muir Woods featuring Jimmy, AWOL and the Freak



Now that we are back from our travel bloggers’ conference TBEX Toronto, World Winder is on a short travel hiatus.  I am looking for ESL teaching and professional development jobs in the NYC area.  We are working with local organizations and artists.

Last night we had a chance to see our good friend Jimmy McDonald perform comedy at Levity Live in the Palisades Center.  Jimmy has been entertaining crowds for years while giving commentary during Suburbia Roller Derby bouts in Yonkers, New York.  We look forward to catching Jimmy again soon.

But for now we”ll have to settle for spotting him on our newest video.  This video features footage from Muir Woods in California.  Muir Woods is a small park perfect for multi-generational families to have a nice stroll.  It is an easy side trip from San Francisco and can be visited in conjunction with wine tastings in Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, or many lesser known regions.  We visited Muir Woods and nearby wineries with a crew featuring AWOL, Julie, Jimmy, and the Freak.

The music featured in the video is by an Argentine band called El Atolón de Funafuti.  I met them in Buenos Aires.  The song is called “Los Cuervos”.  Thanks to the band and the manager.  Check them out at
