California

I have been to Northern California a couple of times. This time I wanted to head down south. Some had warned me about L.A. It’s a dump compared to San Francisco, many said. Turned out: not so much. Quite the opposite is true. And it also turned out that there seems to be a competition going on between the two cities, quite like between Cologne and Düsseldorf in Germany. And equally on mainly friendly terms, taking the competition very lightly. A couple I met in Malibu went as far as saying that L.A.ers don’t even really care about S.F. (and the alleged competition).

But enough said. Over the coming days and weeks I will be posting some of the photos I took on my trip. So make sure you check back from time to time :).

I started off my trip in the Bay Area (actually attending a business meeting). On a quick side trip from Los Gatos we went for lunch to the Santa Cruz Pier where this photo was taken. Lunch was great too. Although I don’t really fancy deep-fried seafood, these were probably about the best fried oysters, clams and crabs I had ever eaten :).
