    ... about ten miles south, though the rush-hour traffic slowed us down. At the motel two women were arguing over the hotel charge and the f-words flew. I checked our receipt and noticed that tax wasn't included but kept my mouth shut. I was miffed we had to pay for wireless connection anyway. A walk over the freeway took us downtown and a great wine bar. The waitress was from Chicago, so we had a good ...

    Home safely

    We arrived home last night around 9:00 after a good, if long, flight on Swiss airlines. It was wonderful to set foot again in the US, to feel the coolness of the air in LA after 3 weeks of heat, and to sleep in our comfortable beds again. I am grateful we had this time together with Susi, to do the wonderful things we did in Italy, to be surrounded with ancient beauty at every turn.

    ... the end of our street to the marina. From there we walked across the beachfront past the wharf and back into the Main Street of town. The street was full of shops, bars and restaurants (apparently there are 750 places to eat out here!). The bars were pumping at 10am - Sunday Footy is big business and thanks to multiple time zones, live games are telecast all day. Sports fans ...

    ... lovely sceneries. I was tempted to stop at a winery or two for some wine tasting but as I have to drive... Not interested to get arrested with DUI charges on my last few days in the US..

    I also pass some beautiful, wide, white sugar-sand beaches, blue water shimmering in the sun, temperatures in the high 20s, not a cloud in the sky. California summer-feel sinks in as I drive through laid back Santa Barbara and suburbs with little Spanish colonial style ...
