Hello, I’m back from a spontaneous trip down to Southern California. I left the same day I decided to leave, so yes, ‘spontaneous’.
Here, I show you “No Cal” central Golden State, backbone of the interstate 5. The Amtrak windows allow plenty of the scenery of beautiful fields to penetrate curious eyes despite the peering into some of America’s backyards.
If you’ve ever been in San Francisco at night, after the crowds of tourists have long left for the warmth of their hotel rooms, you’ll know that there’s this certain peacefulness at seeing empty streets and vacant parking lots. The emptiness of a big city in an almost so post- apocalyptic state.
Here’s a part of the city I know, a view of the ever so foggy center, from Pier 39.
It is not down in any map; true places never are.
