The city by the bay. . . managed to leave with my heart in tact. Just had a fun weekend in SF. Tickets to Giants game, sitting next to the dugout. I must say that the new ball park location has certainly improved the clientele, ambiance, everything! No fights in the stands that was typical with Candlestick. I will make an effort to be a fan now.
The highlight of the weekend was hitting the Tut exhibit at the de Young museum. The above "coffinette" was for the majesty's "viscera", which in a layman's term pretty much means the intestines. It is hard to imagine this organ would be sacred and could be preserved for 3200 years. Gives a whole new dimension to "ass hole".
Such diversity. . . took 4 different taxi's and the drivers were from 4 different country's. The driver with the worst English, had lived here for 25 years! Guess it works for him. Only in America.
I was blown away by the fancy public toilet. I thought it was a visitor information booth at first.
After a weekend of noise pollution and crowds, my little brush Okie palace in the country was very welcome. But I am already planning my next excursion to the bay!
