recently returned from a much needed vacation to san francisco, where m and i lived for 4 1/2 years before moving to philly.
here is m on ocean beach, where i took a long nap within 4 hours of touching down in the city.
here is the antiwar march, which ended in dolores park.
and here is a group of people participating in the first annual "thrill the world" contest. they are part of a worldwide effort to break the guinness world record for largest simultaneous dance. they're dancing to michael jackson's thriller.
san francisco has a warm place in my heart for many reasons, including osento, little otsu, burritos, this guy, and this guy (both guys were at the antiwar march), and our wonderful friends who hosted us with warmth and style.
that said, i love our new home. we took a riverloop boat tour and i snapped this photo while floating down the schuylkill.
