random thoughts: San Francisco edition

img_0391Ah, San Francisco for Thanksgiving. What a special place to spend the holiday. It’s been years since I’ve been to the Bay Area, and it was even more spectacular than before. It’s not surprising that such a unique place would generate  reactions that don’t necessarily have any rhyme or reason.

  • How long would I have to live here before I got used to dogs in Target and everywhere else? Gotta say, dogs doing their business on the sidewalks (since there aren’t lawns in the city) is pretty disgusting. 
  • At almost December everything is still green and blooming. And the temperatures range between 45-75 degrees year round. How do they keep track of the season? 
  • Spotted within the same hour: someone in a tank top and shorts, several people in short sleeves and sandals, and others in fur-lined parkas and Ugg boots. 
  • I thought I lived in a world class foodie town, but SF cuisine takes dining to a whole ‘nother level. 
  • How do people in wheelchairs and on crunches navigate the hills and steps?
  • All of the hours I spent on the treadmill at Orangetheory Fitness at elevations of 10% or more really paid off in tackling the hills. I did not expect how hard it would be to walk downhill.
  • Fisherman’s Wharf wasn’t as trashy as I remember. However, the homelessness problem seems to have dramatically escalated. There has got to be a humane alternative to tent cities that provides security and treats people of all circumstances with dignity.
  • Muir Woods is simply magical.
