Where I stayed
Hi Sacramento

Sunday  We travelled down to the coast to Sacramento.  What we thought would be a 8 hour trip ended up being over 12 hours long and we just made it into our hostel before they closed and didn't allow any more checkins for the night! *phew*.  We shared a ride and fuel money with these two guys driving back to San Fransico as well as another guy who was heading down to San Fransico too.  Was good company, even tho a little squishy in the back of the Volvo with a full car!  I swear every 20 minutes at least there was an exit that had gas as well as a combination of MacDonalds, Jack in the box, Pizza Hut, etc.  There doesn't seem to be as many Maccas in the cities but on all the freeways!

Monday  Today we walked around and explored Sacramento.  It a really pretty little place but not really alot here to see/do.  We did a free tour of the Capital building which was pretty cool and we got to see the Governator's office haha.  Pity we didn't get to see him!  We also saw Old Sacramento which was alright but really was just turned into a tourist trap with heaps of expensive food places and souvenors and crap.  The hostel we are staying in is amazing.  It is an old mansion that has been saved, moved three times and turned into a hostel.  It more like a B&B or a old style hotel, really nice.

Tuesdsay
Today we ventured onto Sacramento's public transport.. the bus.  We went to a nearby suburb shopping 'Mall' called Arden Fair.  Of course this was as there was an apple store here....  We also saw a lego store with all these really cool little things you can build and a whole heap of other things.  Then we walked a million miles in the California sun to find Best Buys and then we went home.

Wednesday was just a chill and work day.  Tomorrow off to San Fransico! woohoo!
