The happiest place on earth.

This was shortly after the march began. Nick and I were way up front. Apparently there were over fifty thousand people in attendance.

This is, as you can see, right outside the Children's Museum.

This is a picture of those dreadful anarchists (not the ones we were following, however). They were rounding up dumpsters to tip over in intersections.

The white stuff you see on the ground is coagulated tear gas. The rags were soaked with something that neutralized them somehow.

Up front are the National Guard with the bean bag shotguns. Right behind them are the riot police. Apparently the batons are supposed to break on impact, making a loud crack, causing you to be deaf for the remainder of the day.
