About Santa Barbara
Our next stop was Santa Barbara, one of the most beautiful towns you could ever find. Beach, ocean, hills, mountains, and the flora! Trees and flowers and plants of all different shapes and sizes! Parks and hiking paths every other street, it seems like. We were very fortunate to have one of our “sons from another mother (and father, too)” come to visit us in Santa Barbara. Charlie grew up with Wes, and has spent a lot of time with us, not only in Dallas, but in Cozumel. He graduated from Harvey Mudd College a year ago, and is working in Los Angeles. We had a great dinner, and laughed the entire time. My little Charlie! What a sweetheart to drive all the way to Santa Barbara to see us.

This year February, i was in #LasAngles and got one day free for some sightseeing. I decided to go to Universal Studio. Being a non working day, It was a lot of crowd there. I started with the Simpson ride first and quite enjoy it. Then i was waiting in the queue for the tour bus of Universal Studio, where they take everyone to show around the sets of Hollywood and a lot more.There was one Korean girl standing next to me in the line and she requested if her friends can join in the line. I was ok with it so i said sure not a problem. She called her other Korean friend who joined her. After few minutes they asked if other friends join too, so i just smiled. I have been to Korea many times so i knew some basic Korean words. I just greeted them saying "anyohaseyo"(which means hello in Korean). They were more excited than surprised and then we started interacting throughout the ride. I came to know that two of them(Jeni and Kate) were settled in NYC since birth and visited other friend(Mini) who was settled in LA.As i was alone so they invited me to join them for the rest of the day. Mini was living in LA from a long time and had been to the theme park many times, so was the best local person who could help me :)

A quick dash to Tijuana on the Mexican border, San Diego is a nice city with nice weather and perhaps some of the nicest people in California. I’ve made several trips here and I always felt relaxed in the city. It doesn’t have that hustle and bustle that other U.S. cities have. Or at least I’ve never sensed it. Come enjoy its beaches, its restaurants and its chilled nightlife. One of the few places in the United States you can actually swim in the Pacific Ocean and not feel you will freeze to death.

Sue (Jenn's auntie) is living in Newport Beach, her house is right in between the Pier and the beach!! Dreamy House right? On Summer Time this beach is packed by tourists. Laguna Beach is also pretty, check out the stores in town, a bunch of Art going on.
