a quick 'hello' from NorCal

Having a blast here in San Francisco/Oakland!  My sister and I have packed a huge amount of fun and activity into the last few days!  I'm not going to give away too much, but here's a taste of the fun you'll have when I get back:

  • near fatality on my first flight
  • finding out how stinky dried jackfruit is
  • a fabulous dinner and terrific experience at Millennium (thanks, Dad!)
  • wandering around San Fran's Mission district 
  • lunch at Gracias Madre
  • dinner at Saha (arabic fusion!)
  • karaoke at Pandora - I won't tell you what I sang, but I have to share my sister's best quote of the night: "I felt like I was watching a peep show with my sister singing in the background." 
  • switched to our Oakland hotel
  • traveled up to Berkeley
  • had a banana-butterscotch cinnamon bun at Cinnaholic (and it was everything I wanted it to be)
  • dinner at Saturn Cafe
More to come, but I didn't want to keep you waiting too long, so there's your little teaser and I'll see you in a few days!


  1. Glad you're safe and on the ground, and that you got to enjoy Gracias Madre. Isn't Cal beautiful? :)

  2. I'm doing a little jig in anticipation!

  3. After 12 hours of travel, I'm back in Philadelphia... tonight we'll just talk about dinner, but I've been busy picking through the 250+ pictures for the round-up :)
