Last Sunday, we were in Sacramento, my beloved Sacramento :) In the morning, we drove to Davis and I showed my cousin the UC Davis Campus where I spent my exchange semester.

We walked on Campus, I showed them the new sports center “The Arc” [very impressive in size and equipment!] and the geology building. We also walked through the Arboretum and then drove back to Sacramento.

I called my friend Ilka and we met with her in “Old Sacramento” for a frappuccino at Starbucks. “Old Sacramento” is the historic part of Sacramento with old Western-style houses that accomodate shops and restaurants today. There is also an old stern wheel riverboat moored in the river, which serves as a hotel, restaurant and theater.

We spent the afternoon in the Downtown Mall and also paid a visit to the State Capitol.

In the evening, my Mom and I had a separated dinner from “the men”. My Dad and Basti preferred to have dinner at the “Macaroni Grill”, while I had suggested to have dinner at “Mimi’s Café”. It was fun to have some private time with my Mom in one of my favorite restaurants in Sacramento :)

Finally, we met Ilka again for some drinks downtown at “Mikuni”, a Japanese Sushi Bar, and got back to the hotel at around 11:30 p.m.
