Things I Have Learned in San Francisco
(also, things San Francisco has taught me)


Lesson #1 - A Hill a Day Keeps Your Legs in Shape

Yesterday Mark and I walked all over the city, up and down many hills. And we're talking San Francisco hills--so steep the sidewalk is a set of stairs. According to Mark, I cannot "carry over" those hills to last me the rest of the week, the slate is wiped clean everyday. Darn.


Lesson #2 - Always Carry Your Camera

The plan for yesterday, in my head anyway, was to head to a shoe store to find Mark some shoes that actually fit (success!), then go out to lunch, then "whatever". We ended up going on a nice, long walk. We came up to the top of this hill, where there was a park. Then we looked to our left and said, "Aren't those the houses at the beginning of Full House? And this is the park they're eating in and stuff! Woah!" Cameraless. Lesson learned.


Lesson #3 - The Next Market will Always Have Greener Veggies

I live a couple of blocks from Chinatown, which makes for cheap veggie shopping. There are a ton of markets, and the quality of each fruit/veggie varies at each--this one as better peaches, but the lettuce at that one looks awesome, and so on. Whenever I settle ("This looks green enough") and buy whatever-it-is, the very next stall has the same thing in even better quality. If I don't buy it the next stall will have rotten whatever-it-is. Without fail.


I think I'm going to keep on adding to this list as time goes on--it's good to remember what you've learnt. ^_^
