You never knew the real history of the people wandering through Santa Cruz today. You thought they were just dirty lost souls but they amount to much more than their appearances. Look again and you might find a bumbling woman from ancient Israel, a feisty queen from ancient Mesopotamia, or a very confused Greek man trying to prove himself. They look ragged because they travelled far to get here.
You may have met some of these rascally characters strolling around downtown Santa Cruz before. All of them have their own uniquely motivated quests across the years and continents… Be ready for a free falling into some noble but ridiculous adventures in some places you may find surprisingly familiar.
