The last set of pictures (Set C) from my San Francisco trip.
When I’m visiting the Bay Area, I find their public transportation system to be very, very useful. San Francisco is an easy city to get around in, without a car. What’s it like, you wonder, to ride a MUNI bus, … Continue reading

First set of pictures from San Francisco, featuring my travel.
So, so sleepy. And ears still haven’t popped yet. What? I can’t hear you… Tomorrow I’m switching to Pacific time. Maybe I’ll have my hearing back. What?
Touchdown in California! Waiting to disembark the plane & meet up with King & Gwen.
