Arrived in Ottawa. - Beautiful hotel...Strange people...Beautiful dinner Talked with Joni Mitchell on the phone...I think I'll record her tonight with my excellent tape recorder (knock on wood) Hmm...can't find any wood...everything's plastic. Beautiful view. Marvelous sound on first show. Good on 2nd. Good recording. Went down to the little club to see Joni - fantastic girl with heaven words. We all go to party - O.K. Millions of girls - listen to tapes and smoked back at hotel.

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 straighten out. Nothing happened in Rochester tonight. Went to a very bad bad bad tasting restaurant. Thugs follow us. They probably was scared. Couldn't figure us out. Me with my Indian hat and Mexican moustach, Mitch with his fairy tale jacket and Noel with his leopard band hat and glasses and hair and accent....G'nite all.
