San Francisco is one of those cities that I never know quite exactly how I feel about it. I’ve spent a lot of time there: back-to-school shopping in Union Square when I was growing up, exploring Fisherman’s Wharf whenever we had foreign exchange students staying with us, going to Giants games and then out on […]
