Berkeley, Valencia, oranges

Originally uploaded by awater

Wandering through Andronico's this morning, searching for a few last minute Thanksgiving cooking items, I came across a new kind of soda for sale in the aisle. Valencia orange juice, cane-sweetened, read the label; and I couldn't help but remember the fields of oranges outside that city, so prominent from the train on approach. I remember those oranges to have seemed the most abundant and flavorful I had ever seen, and with such a sight, could not help but want one. I wondered if the new soda tasted like those fruits I remembered. Doubting it, I put the pack down and continued to the produce section, where I took this photo.
