California man finds shelter from the storm
It took Californian Mario Landeros over seven months and 1800 miles, but now he knows what real Southern hospitality looks like.
Last Tuesday, January 15, Landeros was warming up and using the Blue & White Restaurant’s wi fi connection, when Tunica Humane Society director Sandy Williams stopped in for a food order.
“I saw Landeros’ cart out front and the sign on it that reads ‘Walking across America for St. Jude,’ so I went up and introduced myself,” Williams said.
Landeros, pushing a cart across America to raise funds for St. Jude, landed in the restaurant on the worst weather night so far this winter. Sleet and freezing rain began pelting Landeros as he made his way west from Coldwater, MS and into Tunica County via Prichard Road.
