Hopped on the train from Fullerton to Union Station. This felt much different than other marches I’ve attended. Every age group, race, ethnicity, color and creed came out in this historic moment. And as this year has passed it has become more obvious that this was just the beginning. Hillary Clinton could not break the last highest glass ceiling for women because there’s still a lot of work to be done for equal rights for women.
After the heavy rains kept us off the trails for months, we finally headed down to Anza Borrego to see the desert super bloom. It was awesome to see the pop of color across the normally monochrome desert.
Calico is a relic of the old west. Not only is it a fun place to visit for everyday Americans, but also for any foreign students or friends you may have. The rock formations are also a wonder unto themselves.
When I visited Torino, I had a chance to have the best hot chocolate in the world. I dream of this hot chocolate, because it is not like the Swiss Miss stuff we have in America (that barely qualifies as hot chocolate). This hot chocolate known as cioccolata calda(or cioccolata in tazza) is a sort of thick, creamy chocolate as if one had melted a chocolate bar into a cute little cup. Genius! I recommend anyone visiting Torino to try this decadent treat!
Today I got caught in the rain. The previous days have been sweltering so I assumed I would have more sunshine. I have been sick for the last few days as well. Today I was feeling slightly better so I decided to go out to look at some shops. Only, instead of sunshine, I was caught in the rain without an umbrella. A sengalese man was walking around the streets selling umbrellas. He came up to me and asked “L’ombrello?” and I asked “Quanto costo? How much?” “5 Euro.” At this point it was a torrential downpour and I needed that umbrella. It was pretty crazy.
