Then we went to the world-famous Bouchon bakery, a Thomas Keller restaurant, where I bought some treats for myself and some for my dogs (which they went crazy over). Laura showed me where she wants to have her wedding some day. We ate a late lunch at an Italian restaurant in Napa.
Sunday evening Laura went to an LSAT prep test at UC Davis, and I thought to myself “Hmmm, I’ll find a yoga studio in Davis and take a class!” Well I found several studios in Davis but only two that had class during my time frame. One was pre-natal and one was a Yoga/Bollywood dance class. Why not?
I got there really early and got to spend some time doing yoga privately in the deliciously air conditioned yoga studio while the teacher ran an errand. I also relaxed a bit and read some Harry Potter. Those 45 minutes were precious to an introvert like me.
The class itself was interesting, there really wasn’t much yoga – about 30 minutes split up before and after the dance class – but it was worth going and I had a lot of fun. I’m definitely not going to be a dancer in a Bollywood movie anytime soon, but it was a nice way to burn off some calories.
When we got home Sunday night my host and hostess had guests, which quickly turned into a raucous and hilarious party complete with lots of wine and champagne. Even though I had to rise at 5 to catch my plane, I enjoyed some partying myself. The flights home on Monday were uneventful and I slept a lot.
I miss California.
