It’s remarkable how markedly better life is when you have someone to do stuff with. KM’s visiting from Vanuatu and came in to the city tonight giving me a good excuse for touristy tourisms. It’s amazing how little I know about SF after four months here. Dinner at the Stinking Rose in North Beach? CNHB will likely disagree when she’s here but it’s surprisingly North End-esque (plus way more interesting topography). Riding the cable car back to Market St? Fantastic fun, a first time for me, and best of all unexpectedly free with a MUNI pass. No ice skating in Union Square but the Zamboni was cool. All in all a good night, am* happy.
