Why Hanford you might think? What is there that is so interesting that it is worth a stop? Actually nothing much except for the fact that it was a place that we would reach around dinner time, and they have tons of Chinese restaurants as a remainder of railroad history. So Linda opened up a laptop, plugged in the ReadyBroadband stick (which is finally working again) and booked a Hotel for the night whilst we were cruising on highway 99. Around 19:00 we reached our hotel for the night, the Sequoia Hotel in Hanford (which was number one on tripadvisor). We checked in and headed out to the Chinese restaurant 'Hong Kong Chop Suey' for some well anticipated food.
The restaurant served (as expected) Chinese food adjusted to American taste in portions the size of mountains, nevertheless we enjoyed our Tsing Tao with deep fried noodles and prawns, spring rolls, Lemon Fish and sweet and sour pork. The staff was happy to hear some Cantonese, but me 'complimenting' the owner with a joking 'Ho Gwei Lo Choi' (Good white man food) was not received as funny. Tired from a long day of traveling we headed back to the Hotel to update our photo album and update our travel blog.
Tomorrow we head for Napa. yum yum...
