Raymond and Cissy Chandler burial ceremony - Valentines Day 2011
Esotouric takes a road trip to San Diego to attend the Cissy Chandler burial service, visit the Bali Hai tiki bar and meet the possible ghost of Jesse Shepard inhabiting a very odd feline outside his astonishing home, Villa Montezuma.

Music by the Crown Island Jazz Band.
