So here I am…entering California. The drive was pretty comfortable all in all. My rental car was nicely equipped with Sirius Satellite Radio, so most of the first day of driving was spent singing along to the 80’s channel. The one thing you can say about a solo road trip…no one can complain about your singing. I wasn’t in California long however before I ran across this:
Day one’s destination was Madera, CA. I was going to crash at my friend Nicole’s aunt & uncle’s house. Nicole happened to be in the states (she currently lives in Sicily) during August and offered to give me a place to crash. We went out for a nice dinner at The Vineyard Restaurant and afterwards watched a little tv with her aunt & uncle before I crashed for the night.
Day two was a quick drive down to Los Angeles. I stopped in the town before the Grapevine to fill up again and was on my way. Traffic wasn’t to bad once I hit the LA area except for a little stretch near Downtown LA. I pulled up to my new place (a townhouse) just after 11am. After a quick bite for lunch I unloaded the car and here I was…a resident of Los Angeles.
