Reality check

I knew Santa Cruz had a sizable population of German heritage, but there’s something bizarre about speaking German with a tanned taxi driver while zipping past palm trees in balmy 32-degrees-Celsius (90 degrees F) weather in a very un-European landscape.

Santa Cruz is said to have the world’s second-largest Octoberfest after Munich.

Too bad it’s only February.
