SF to Sunday Morning

So staying downtown in a city like SF is odd... it creates a "GOGOGO!!!" feeling that is totally different than the last visit here where we stayed in North Beach. Yesterday and this morning we captrued some of that feeling again. We took the bus down to North Beach, or rather the opposite end fo the pier and then walked along, looking at things and hanging out with Lucas. We then went up the hill to Columbus and ate at a cool little (cheaper) Italian place. (name to come in the edit) It was totally fun and lucas continues to eat past like a mad man. Then we waited for the Mason cable car and then we road home and headed up to bed. It was a very mellow day.

This morning we went for a walk to the Yerba Buena Gardens, which I consider to be the model every city planer should be using for urban parks. Next to it, connected by a walk way is the ZEUM center, which has really realy nice park for children, the play surface is all in rubber and there are HUGE slides. Lucas giggled with glee.

I have no idea what we will do this afternoon, but we're trying to keep it chilled before we go home tomorrow.

I was at the door of the apple store when it opened. The homless people running up the stairs to check their e-mail is facinating to watch. Their tech ;needs are beyond me... do they email buddies? At least one is maintaining some kind of web presence... I wonder if there are any studies on how they use computers and if there would be a way to do outreach with them. There is a video editing suite okn wheels in Montreal that allows homeless kids to do their own videos... and there was a project in remote areas of India to give computer access to poor rural kids ....
