Hitting the Pavement, Speaking Their Language, & Positive Feedback

Saturday, Prashant, Elizabeth, and myself hit the pavement. Amidst the sweltering temperatures, we headed to an apartment complex.

We thought that the apartment complex would offer the opportunity to meet more people in less time. However, after knocking on two doors, Elizabeth and I realized that most of the residents were Russian.

We quickly decided that the best use of our time would be to join Prashant in a nearby neighborhood instead of trying to overcome the language barrier. We also knew that Tsvetana, who is fluent in Russian, would be able to campaign there much more effectively.

So, Prashant, Elizabeth, and I met up with Ryan and Tsvetana. We then paired off on different streets surrounding a nearby High School. Ryan and I received a lot of good responses from residents.

At the end of the day, everyone was both scorched and exhausted. However, we were pleased with the positive feedback.
