California

Early Spring in San Diego

I spent the last week of March in San Diego. The farmers’ market in Little Italy was bustling. I was excited to discover that most of the spring fruit and vegetables that I usually wait for until May/early June were already in season and out for sale in the farmer’s stalls. I couldn’t help but indulge in some strawberries and asparagus, along with many other fruits (oranges and lemons, of course). I also discovered a mysterious fruit, the cherimoya, which I will tell you about!

A Road Trip

A Road Trip

Last month, my husband and I went on a road trip in California. It was a welcome relief from a crazy winter of study. We shifted from work mode into vacation mode quite easily, but there was another shift that we had to make.

Rather than planning our trip out day-by-day with a rental car and a new hotel each night, we decided to go California style and rent a VW camper van. This way we could stop wherever we were and not have a set itinerary.
