I always thought Americans were petrol-burning cowboys, but that turns out to apply to the Texans only. Americans, or I should say ‘Californians’, are rather environmentally and health conscious people. That is also why a lot of people go for a run during evening hours. Something I also took up. The people around here are very friendly, helpful, and easygoing.
Davis is a nice place to hang out and its location is also pretty great, as it’s located in between several big national parks, including Yosemite, Point Reyes, and Lake Tahoe. During weekends I am mainly exploring all the beautiful things California has to offer. And I do so the American way: I rented a Harley and drove to Napa Valley, renowned for its good wine, which is said to be even better than French wine. And after the Harley adventure I couldn’t very well pass up a trip in a Ford truck.
Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and so does ‘Frans does America’. Luckily we have a stopover in Chicago before going home again.
