On leaving your heart in San Francisco

10 days in San Francisco is good for the soul. I had forgotten how wonderful travel is; and travelling solo has its many virtues. A wonderful literary city, I experienced it all - from staying in a Victorian apartment in Nob Hill with cable cars rumbling up the hill outside my window; to waking to an earthquake; doing the touristy thing at Fisherman's Wharf; food trucks by the Marina at sunset; chowing down on dan-dan noodles in Chinatown; walking the Embarcadero; sampling gourmet delights at the Ferry Building; trampling down Haight St with flowers in my hair; journeying to Berkeley; gourmanding at Chez Panisse; swilling martinis at the Top of the Mark; crashing an Indian wedding at the Fairmont; walking the Castro and the Mission; scanning the shelves at City Lights; baseballing at AT&T Stadium; arty-fartying at the de Young in Golden Gate Park; inspecting ruins at Sutro Baths...and shopping. So...do you think I got any writing done?
