Farewel to the 40th Worldvegfest - San Francisco

Good evening everybody. It has been a great pleasure to be here. This is my second time in California. The first one was in 1995 when I came to the Vegan Festival in San Diego – and at that time I was convinced to become a vegan myself. So I am greatly indebted with California. I wish to pay back by coming here again and again to enjoy the Mecca of vegetarianism.
