Return of the Rasta and the Skinny White Chick

I used to spy this odd couple up around Hi-Pointe near the city limits. Both wore tattered clothing and dreadlocks. The waif appeared as pale as her companion was black. They lived in a an old van, which was often parked near the Chinese restaurant next to Cheshire Inn. But their home seemed to be the woods near the Skinker Boulevard entrance to Forest Park. Perhaps they foraged for roots and berries there. They disappeared sometime back. Recently, I spotted them wandering the streets of downtown St. Louis.
