Visiting San Francisco for the week… Landed last Friday, and was greeted with pretty flowers in the airport. First thing off the plane, I visited the de Young Museum, which is in the Golden Gate Park. Couple of days in, I went onto the tour of the enormous Stanford campus, and walked into a garden full of Rodin sculptures along with the impressive art building. Couldn’t find the opportunity to find its studios but they sounded fairly cool. Spent the weekend in Oakland, watching a live orchestra Charlie Chaplin movie, City Lights, for the first time in its Paramount Theater and under its amazing roof and all of the stage like Art Deco interior details. All to say, I can say the weather out here is cold as it can be but there is something about the crispness of it that keeps one active, energetic, daringly underdressed and going.
