A Trip to San Francisco
Hideko and I took the train down to San Francisco, together with Sheryl, another student at the LSA.
We were met by Hideko's friend Andy, a Japanese guy who has been living in San Francisco for a long time. Andy took us to some of his favorite places around the town, across the Golden Gate Bridge, of course, but also to a wonderfully steep street that had been planted in hydrangeas, all in bloom that weekend.
We had lunch at Andy's restaurant, We Be Sushi. The miso soup was great--Andy's mom must have been a really good cook! But at least some of the sushi was a kind that his mother probably never made, like his special grilled eggplant sushi.
