Our Fourth of July was an adventuresome affair! We took the bus up to Twin Peaks, the highest point in San Francisco, and picnicked all afternoon, despite strong winds. I scouted about and found us a sunnier, more protected spot. Despite the chill, and thanks to many provisions and silly games, we managed to survive until the fireworks started.
The views were incredible and it was a rare clear night. We could see fireworks way off in North Bay, all over the Mission, way across in Oakland, through the fog and over the waters in Sausalito, and of course, San Francisco’s own show: twin trumpeting bouquets of color explosions…. Ahh… They were worth the wait and the cold! I didn’t get pictures of the fireworks, but there are other fun pictures of friends and things.
Lastly, I totally forgot to mention this, but recently, I was interviewed by and featured on the Kyoto JET’s Unofficial Webzine, the Ganbatte Times. Woo! Here, please read it!
Happy July, freedom, and summertime adventures, one and all…
