Today I spent together with the lovely bloglily who invited me over to Berkeley. Berkeley is about 25 minutes by BART train (Bay Area Rapid Transit) and I had a great day. We had tea in a lovely cafe, walked around in the city, and Lily was friendly enough to lend me her bicycle, so I cycled to Berkeley University campus and had a bicycle ride in that area – the weather has just been amazing, and still is.
And I met Archie, the wonder dog, he is so so cute!
I also visited the charming Elmwood cinema in Berkeley where I both had a very first look at the US trailer for Pirate Radio (The Boat That Rocked!) with Bill and I saw Julia and Julie with Amy Adams and Meryl Streep (sweet film!).
I bought the mandatory pairs of Levi’s jeans and have started packing my suitcase. It feels like I have been away for ages, and it also feels very wrong to go home. Life here has been very good.
I do have some photos from today, I will post them when I am back in London as it is late, and I need some sleep. My flight tomorrow is 16.55 from San Francisco International airport – arrival Wednesday, 11am at Heathrow.
Bye bye USA. For now-uh!

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful trip with us. It’s almost like we’ve all been with you :o)
Have a safe flight home (even if you don’t really want to go).
Goede reis !!
I just saw Julia and Julie here in Germany and I loved it. Next thing I did was looking up in Youtube the real Julia Child . Amazed to see how well Meryl Streep had mimicked her body language and the way Julia Child speaks.
I saw the fragment where Julia Child explains the creation of an omelett. Guess what I prepared for dinner :-)
I am happy for you that you had an excellent west coast experience. It brought back memories.
Enjoy the Red Eye special!
Have a save flight home
Safe trip home, thanks for sharing your hols with us (and Archie is very cute!)
it was so wonderful seeing you Ingrid! I think you’re home by now and probably enjoying a NAP or a good night’s sleep. Archie sends his love too. xoxoxo
Your day in Berkeley sounds wonderful! I bike that area, too! My office is a few blocks from the Elmwood. A great theater when it was a single screen. Hope you had a good flight home and hope now that you’ve been here, you’ll want to come back again and again… Point Reyes National Seashore next time!! ;-)
I love Berkeley. I used to live in Marin County, and I’ll never forget walking in Berkeley, and visiting Moe’s Books..(Great Bookstore!).
Enjoy, California..I miss it.
