California!


Me & Munkie

This weekend was probably one of the best weekends I've had in a long time. Munkie and I went to San Jose, CA. The hellacious flight from here took us through Phoenix and Ontario. Yes. Ontario. 12 hours later, we made it to our destination. Apparently, there's an Ontario, California.

The much needed trip to California was my first vacation, ever. I can't recall ever taking time off to go somewhere I didn't have to be. And it felt good. This trip was to visit my best friend from college, Seda. Amazing how people still look and act the same after what seems like forever. :-)

She drove me by Cupertino on the way to some really good sushi. Sushi that came by on boats. I had never seen that before. We had nan wraps from a farmers market for breakfast and then spent the day in San Francisco walking along the piers and up to a very closed, very under renovation Ghirardelli factory. We hopped a trolly and talked to some interesting people. We met fellow Texans going to culinary school, a couple of street wise kids doing really well in school, and the random ass-hats. Ones that like to freeze people with open windows. And Seda treated me to my first Arabic dinner ever. So much goodness.
