|Me in the closed Tonga Room|
I spent my Tuesday in San Francisco, it was strictly a pleasure trip. Mom and I stayed at The Fairmont Hotel, particularly because I wanted to sip some Mai Tai's in their tiki bar called the Tonga Room. Upon check in, my dreams are squashed and I'm told the Tonga Room is closed on Tuesdays. The perky receptionist suggests I'll just have to come back for a visit again soon! I'm not amused. Eventually I got over it and we took a walk into town.

How do people live in San Francisco? Don't get me wrong, it's beautiful, the people are friendly, the climate is perfection, and there's a surplus of choices for food and drink. You see, what I'm talking about is the feeling of walking down streets so steep I might as well wear a harness so I can repel down like its a cliff. It's the downhill part that gets me the most. At least after walking uphill I can count on that post-workout feeling in my butt and thighs so I can justify this day of carb and fat overload.
