Things I learned in San Francisco

• There are more registered dogs in SF than children (seriously--according to our tour guide, this is true)

• For someone who hates to drive, public transportation rocks!

• There is no such thing as personal space

• It takes more than 4 days to get used to the 2 hour time change

• 9 years is too long to go before seeing a good friend again--way too long

• To be a tour guide, you gotta like talking to yourself and laughing at your own jokes

• The homeless population is staggering

• When the airline (followed by a 7 block walk) ruins your suitcase, there are several great places to buy another one  (so take your time and pick the brightest, orangiest one you an find)

• Being a tourist and taking the touristy pictures is fun

• You CAN have too many maps

• If you miss one bus, just wait—another is on the way

• Taxi drivers know how to drive defensively—VERY defensively

• Splurging on a pedicure is well worth the ½ mile walk to get there and back

• The local neighborhood dive is a great place to start and end your time

• San Francisco is a great place to celebrate 20 years of friendship
