Driving south to Sacramento we passed gorgeous golden fields, you can tell this is a very big farming area.
We arrived in Sacramento, drove through downtown and went to The Plum Cafe.

This is a vegan cafe and a lot of options are gluten free. Sangeet had the California Burger, which she enjoyed very much! I had a cupcake (I had a big lungar at the Gurdwara earlier!) which was gluten free and vegan. It was amazing and I was hooked on them! The staff are very friendly and the service is good.
Afterwards we walked to the Capitol building which was about ten blocks away. You would never notice as the city is flat – walking feels so easy. The temperature was around 85 degrees f which for me was good.
The Capitol building is amazing and the grounds around it are so pristine. On the way back to the car we passed through the Capitol buildings gardens, they had the amazing Redwoods and other trees/plants which were all labeled, and some interesting shops. The atmosphere in Sacramento is really relaxed – nice city.
Orange tree in the park!
Before leaving ‘Sac’ we went to a shop that specialised in gluten free products, Sangeet wanted to see it as she had never been to a totally gluten free shop before.

Instead I was in heaven and stocked up, Sangeet only bought a yoghurt (just to keep me company)! I bought hummus, cookies and crostini.
We got back to the car and headed south on Interstate 5, west on 580 and then south on 680 to San Jose (silicon valley!)
