Do you remember that song by Weezer that goes "Beverly Hills, Thats where I want to be, gimme gimme, gimme gimme, living in Beverly Hills..." Well, If the song was about San Francisco, It would pretty much be exactly how I am feeling right at this very second. From November 2009 to January 2010 I travelled around the lovely United States of America, in 8 Weeks, I managed to see 19 states, some for only an hour hours while I waited at a different bus stop for the next greyhound, or for a new train, some for a few hours while we drove through your highways to get to some great site, some for only a few days, and others for just over a week.
I was in San Francisco for just over 4 days. It was no where near long enough for me to explore this incredible city, and I remember when I left, I felt a little saddened that I hadnt got to experience more of what I knew was hiding around the corner. I know, that I left a little piece of my heart in San Francisco.
And today, My heart is missing that little piece. I miss the cable cars, the beautiful homes, Haight St, The fog that hits in the early evening and instantly cools the day which has been ever so warm and beautiful, I miss Union Square and Nob Hill, The diversity of the Castro District. I miss walking through the Muesum of Modern Art and drinking coffee on the streets in the sunshine, watching people play chess in on the sidewalk. I miss San Francisco.
