“Going back to Cali, strictly for the weather…
I’m going going, back back to Cali Cali.”
– Biggie Smalls
Now that it is 90-100+ degrees here in Texas, I think Biggie Smalls had a great idea when he said that he is “going back to Cali, strictly for the weather.” All this heat is reminding me about the wonderful trip I took to see my closest Vassar friends and teammates (Clara, Marie and Mark) in LA and San Francisco. From cruising down the Californian coast in a convertible mustang to strolling down Venice Beach…Oh, how nice it was! California has got to be one of the best places I have visited this year. I mean they do know “how to party” - did you catch my Tupac reference there ;) .

Marie and I meet Clara and Mark at a vegan restaurant called Gracias Madre. Man, it was good! I want to thank a travel app named Hello Scout for helping make reservations at this eatery!
