San Jose Night Market

I love food. And I'm a sucker for food trucks. Put multiple ones together in a close vicinity and you'll find me nearby. Though the reviews for the San Jose Night Market were generally that it wasn't as good as last year, my old roomie Kim, and I thought that is nothing else, we'd have a bite together. (Which doesn't happen as often as we would like these days, now that she's married and has an energetic little boy in her life.)

To sweeten the deal, even without knowing what would be there, two other friends who are being dear to me spent the evening there as well. And a little culture when we enjoyed a lion dance performed by high schoolers. It was intense! While I was right to have lowered my expectations (definitely not as much variety as last year), I had french fries and quality time with friends. Cheesy perhaps....

but seriously, there were french fries and milk tea. Doesn't take more more to make me happy. :)

Left My Heart in San Francisco

It was my first time reading a REAL bicycle in about 15 years. While it was at moments very painful to keep going along our 12 mile ride (taking our group of 12 from the Ferry Building to Sausalito) there was one thing that made me so happy about coming along.

It was the view of San Francisco from perspectives I've never experienced. I've been to SF many times over the three years I've lived in The Bay area. While I am not a seasoned native by any means, I've seen the bridge during the day, during the middle of the night. I've taken photos in the Ferry Building, outside the ferry building, looking up at it...from afar. But the views that I was afforded from being up close and personal on a bike, reminds me that every time, I leave a little bit more of my heart in SF.
