I've lived in northern California for four years and that little adventure is about to come to an end. During that time, I've visited almost every part of this great, beautiful state, made some wonderful friends, and truly can say I "know" the people here. Before, California was always this unknown with unknown people. I thought of Hollywood stars, protestors in San Francisco, Disneyland, but it's SOOO much more. I'm really glad to have tasted its richness and feel very blessed.
