Tom, Megan and I arrived in Watsonville today after a short flight into San Jose. We hit a long stretch of traffic on the drive into Watsonville, so it took us most of the afternoon to get here. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted by members of the Watsonville – Santa Cruz JACL chapter, who treated us to a delicious potluck dinner! As you can probably guess, we were quite excited about the food, which included Spam musubi, Chinese chicken salad, and chocolate-dipped locally-grown strawberries. It was wonderful to be able to meet some of the folks we’ll be interviewing and working with in the coming days, so we’re excited to get started!
