The perfect singer for a Mexican road trip? Linda. The perfect writer? Lawrence.
Normally I’d be super jealous of a writer who gets to ride-along with Linda Ronstadt, on a Mexican road trip. But I went to J-school with Lawrence Downes and I know what an amazing writer he is. Plus, he can hold his mezcal. So in the spirit of sharing all great things literary and Latin — I hope you enjoy this piece from the New York Times.
