    The best thing to do is just enjoy yourself.

    California is the greatest agricultural state in the USA [really]. their cheeses and wines are world-class. [ Oz wines are also exceptional and compete in world competitions, often winning.]

    So, souvenirs for mates back home.

    If service is good, I almost always give 20% tip. Waiters, drivers - they get tips. The cashier in the grocery store, the person behind the counter at a fast-food outlet, and retail clerks do not.

    Always go to the bar and give an extra tip to the bartender - they get stiffed a lot.

    Welcome to the USA. When you are ready for a real experience, visit Texas [yee-hah!]
