It’s certainly not your father’s America. However it could be your daddy’s if you play your cards right^Is that 30 minutes just outside the city where, as one local said, "we have nature!". If I could find a place high on a hill that was defensible, then maybe.
I'm not sure "one good museum" is a selling point.
What's with the garbage on the streets?
Wanting a coffee, I'm sorry - "The best coffee in the country!" I stupidly got in line at some place called Blue Bottom or Blue Bird and had to listen the fucking chipper chick behind the counter greet everyone with a peppy "HI THERE!". After about 8 of those I left the line and looked for a Dunkin' Donuts. No luck.
You're whining about SF but spent 8 days in Tijuana on purpose?About a month ago, I passed within 100 miles of San Francisco in Interstate 5. On the afternoon of the 21st, and on the afternoon of the 31st. That's as close as I care to get.
Think of San Francisco as a whole (hole)... I DO!
People don't crap in the streets in Tijuana. The store owners I know are some of the greatest people. I stay in a nice hotel with air conditioning, new toiletries, fresh towels, and clean bedclothes (daily), as well as cable television, Wi-Fi, a Continental breakfast, and marble-tiled bathroom walls. On top of all that, I can call anywhere in the world just by asking the desk clerk to dial the number for me. The cost? it is all part of the room rent.You're whining about SF but spent 8 days in Tijuana on purpose?
Now that I'm vaccinated, I'm going to try and apply mine all over the place...
“It was thought that people whom God by his grace in life had preserved . . . would become better, humble, virtuous and catholic, avoiding inequities and sins and overflowing with love and charity for one another. But . . . the opposite happened. Men . . . gave themselves over to the most disordered and sordid behaviour than ever before. As they wallowed in idleness, their dissolution led them into the sin of gluttony, into banquets, taverns, delicate foods and gambling. They rushed headlong into lust” -- Matteo Villani (describing aftermath of the Black Death in the 1300s)
Whenever I'm in Vegas, the Pepper Mill, and attached bar make me happy...Aristotle wrote that to become virtuous, you often have to go from one extreme to another, sometimes bouncing back and forth a bit, till eventually you find virtue in moderation. I've always liked that. Could be because I'm from Las Vegas.
That's long been a local's favorite. I think I've only been once ever, but was a good time, with some old high school friends who were regulars.Whenever I'm in Vegas, the Pepper Mill, and attached bar make me happy...
I sometimes feel like that old Billy Joel songI like to feel I'm moderate in my excesses
