Where did we leave off? Ah yes, California. I was navigating BART trains with an extra piece of luggage I picked up in the city. T’was easy-peasy on a Saturday.
I tried to imagine what it was like to be a commuter and read a book, but looking out the window through the shipping containers of Oakland’s shores and all the neighborhoods along the way to Richmond took precedent.
Erik was waiting for me at the station and we hit the road to see his parents and extended fam on the outskirts of Sacramento. There may have been a pit stop at In-N-Out along the way, but it was the homemade pizza, lasagna and good vibes of the evening that linger.
