|Wednesday 25th - Saturday 28th May 2005 - Back in California|
I spent the last couple of days with my host family and friends in California. My first visit there dates back to my high school time in 1996 and it was very nice to seeing all of them again. Unfortunately, I didn’t make it up to the SFO region this time… sorry. To CA I made it just in time for my host brother’s graduation from high school…
There was a little party for his graduation, but that was more of a family thing. Besides attending his ceremony, I didn’t do much in CA. Well, Andrew and Cynthia were getting ready to move to Utah this Sunday and in between work, packing, and organising there wasn't much time left. We went shopping a couple times and were out for food. I spent a lot of time at the pool, too, and was out with friends. It was good to be back.
Ich think this war Andrew's prom. Unfortunately, I wasn't there. However, that kind of recalled some memories of my prom in Fresno, CA, a long time ago.

The entire class of 2005. BTW Andrew went to a Christian high school.
After all these long high school years Andrew finally receives his scroll for graduation.

Ah yes, I was there, too.

Dicie and me
Burnadette and me. Some of you might remember her. She came to see me in Germany a couple years ago. We went to some pubs during the weekend, before I had to leave Fresno.
It was great to be back and I would have loved to stay longer. Thanks for having me over. I'm sure I will return sooner or later, to Utah, and to Fresno.
