San Francisco - Day 1

Early flight meant up at the crack of dawn. That's ok...too excited to sleep anyway. It's been over thirty years since I've been back there. I'm sure a lot have changed.

The cab ride was fairly tame as far as crazy cab rides go. We're staying at a flat in the Castro district. The place is much nicer and more comfortable than a standard hotel room. For the most part, the place is great as temporary home away from home but lacking if you like hotel amendities. . The first day was spent getting the lay of the land, shopping for necessities, followed by a short walk on Castro street. Interesting place.

Castro Theatre
The Castro Theater is a piece of San Francisco history.  We were tempted to see a show but doubt we would stay awake that long. It's been a very long day.

Dinner was a quick meal at a local cafe called Cafe Flores.  The food was excellent and prices really reasonable.  It seems to be the kind of place you could go in, have a coffee or drink, eat if you want.  

Spicy Shrimp Quesadilla
Unfortunately, the place we're staying at has a really crappy coffee maker.  We found a place that had great beans but you can't do much with a crappy machine.  The hunt for good coffee begins.
