On a lighter note, my trip out west was FABULOUS. Not going to lie, I was a bit put off when I first landed in Reno because of all the brown and the lack of trees, but I fell in love with it while I was there. We drove to San Francisco with Kim and went to In and Out! Our first night in California we went out to dinner with the gang: Roxanne, Elizabeth, Kate, Moony, Grant, and Tom. We went out for hookah after and got Sex on the Beach and Pomegranate. I would never be a smoker but I love hookah so much, probably not a habit I should continue. While we were there we went to Crissy Field (my field!!) and I took a ballet class in the city with Moony. I also went up to Hillsburough with Tom. We went out to lunch in San Mateo and I saw Malia, form camp, in Palo Alto. I experienced so much of California while we were there, so fabulous.
Back in Reno Kate and I went tubing down the Truckee River, swimming and kayaking at Tahoe, visited caisnos, and went to an all you can eat buffet! The West is so beautiful, I love the mountains and the views. Lake Tahoe is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, the water is so clear. I can't wait to go back in the Winter!!
