It’s been really warm here, in the 70s, so I’ve been hanging around in Manteca. Yesterday I visited an almond orchard and a vineyard. I also stopped by a farm to see some goats in the field. There are more grapes grown for wine around here than any place else in the United States. They tell me that when the almond trees are in bloom, you can smell them everywhere. Since it’s winter now the trees don’t have any leaves or flowers and the vineyards don’t have any leaves or grapes. I’m leaving for Mexico this afternoon. See the sites and meet some new people!
