Return to Kafkaville

I’m back home in Kafkaville now, after an amazing month spent all around California. It was the Wish Fulfillment tour, spent doing all kinds of wonderful California Summer things, visiting friends and family, and being treated like visiting royalty at every turn.

I think I’d run out of exclamation points if I had to describe all the cool things we got to do on that trip. My favorite meal? My grandma’s barbecued carne asada, with her beans and rice and cold Pacifico beers. But the food at places like Santa Barbara’s La Super Rica were transcendent as well. I can still taste their horchata, which bWg is convinced uses condensed milk.

I knew I was home when I had to drive the Fabia again after having a big-ass Ford Expedition SUV for the duration of my stay; I guess I’ve used up this year’s carbon emissions allotment driving it that month. Say what you will about those cars’ efficiency, but you sure can put a lot of people and stuff in one. It was an interesting change for me, because my time in Kafkaville has turned me into only an occasional driver (I either walk or take the bus to work, and prefer trains to driving in the Czech Republic because you can knock back a beer or seven along the way).

Because I have family all over the state, I get to see all kinds of different places, and only now, when reviewing all the pictures I took along the way, I’m reminded what a really beautiful place it is.

Were there things I wish I’d done while there? Of course, but also along the way somewhere (I think it was on the plane over), I managed to pick up and fight off a bout of pneumonia. Go figure.

Anyway, I’m back now, and regular blogging will now resume.

  2. We miss you guys already; and not to rub it in or anything, but the carne asada was sizzling at Grams this weekend. It had to have been the greatest carne to date.

    I know, that was cruel, but maybe it will shorten the time between your next visit if I keep posting this stuff.

    Later,
    Grant
