here, there, everywhere

San Francisco

In U.S. on August 24, 2008 at 8:00 pm

It’s the end of summer and time for one last holiday.  I am meeting my sister, brother, and nephews in L.A. for a few days at Disneyland but on the way I stopped in San Francisco to greet my friend from Syria.  Meena’s finally arrived after her mom’s efforts to get her into school in the U.S.  She’s part of an American initiative to help Iraqi students complete a university education in relative safety.  This is her first time in the U.S. so I thought I’d hang out for a few days and help her acclimatize.  We’ve been touring the city and hanging out a little in San Rafael where she’ll be going to school.  Touring over, now onto L.A…

Horror of horrors, my rental car for the weekend. Nothing screams “Tourist” louder than a pumpkin orange HHR.

Another architectural shot. Can’t remember what we’re looking at here.

There’s always something odd to be viewed by the water.

Flowers at the conservatory in Golden Gate Park.
