March 20th, 1968

Hendrix writes in his journal today: “We left Ottawa City today – I kissed Joni goodbye, slept in the car awhile. Stopped at a highway diner. I mean a Real one like in the movies. Mitch and I discuss our plans for movie. Slight disagreement here and there but it will be soon straightened out. Nothing happened in Rochester tonight. Went to a very bad bad (illegible) bad tasting restaurant. Thugs follow us. They probably was sacred. Couldn’t figure us out. Me with my Indian hat and Mexican moustach [sic], Mitch with his fairy tale jacket and Noel with his leapeord [sic] band hat and glasses and hair. And accent. G’nite all.”
