Golden Sacramento

The capital of the state California is… nope, not LA and yes Sacramento. Historically the capital was moved from San Jose to Vallejo then Benicia, eventually came to Sacramento. Why not LA? Nobody thinking about LA seriously.

Anyway, Sacramento is the great city and what is good: 1. Rich 2. Cheap 3. Clean 4. Public transport works well (except weekends) 5. Best bicycle roads in US 6. Lots of trees 7. Fair traffic (freeways connecting every district). Center of the city divided by downtown and midtown what got the perfect structure of a square with alphabetic and digits streets. In a gold rush, the city was the point for all diggers who want to trade. Some old buildings from gold rush still here.
What I noticed in people, they got Sac accent, which is nice and recognizable. From all the world dreamers came here, except Americans here is a number of Japanese, Chinese, Mexicans, Russians and other cultures.
