- Fizzy Thoughts: Sacramento


Wednesday, February 13, 2008

Monday night, after we arrived in Sacramento, we walked under the freeway to Old Sacramento. Old Sacramento is really just a tourist trap. Sure, it has the old buildings and wooden sidewalks, but I somehow doubt the tattoo parlor is original.

But on a Monday night, it was very quiet, so we walked over to the river, and then went to dinner at California Fats. Here are some pictures of the river and of a beautiful fountain at the restaurant. The fountain is three stories, and my pictures suck, but you can get an idea. It's flat etched rock that spans the three levels of the restaurant, with a piece at the bottom with the word Peace. There are palm trees on both sides. It really is gorgeous, and we got to sit right beside it.

I've never been to Sacramento. I have family there though.

You were here, and I missed you!? Crud. Let me know next time, 'kay? (Yes, Old Sac is a tourist trap, but it's still lots of fun...)

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
