I also went into the University of California, Davis campus a few times, it was so different from any other I have seen. Canterbury University has a good proportion of cyclists, it was the predominate form of transport at UCD by a large margin. Some students were slack-lining outside of their rec center so I joined them for a few hours trying to cartwheel off the line and jump into trees.
One of the weekends took me south to San Fransisco for the Save the Music festival. Another brilliant Californian day which I got to enjoy with some really good live music!

|A battle of the bands - Berkley vs Davis|
Without doubt the highlight was watching the battle of the bands between the Berkley and Davis marching bands. Davis was a lot more lively and had a much bigger turnout for this particular show.
