When You Go to San Francisco ...

- Pretend to be imprisoned in Alcatraz.



- Pretend to be visiting an Alcatraz prisoner.



- Pretend Alcatraz is Azkaban.



- Pick fruits and flowers illegally at the Alcatraz (Azkaban) gardens.



- Subsequently get arrested.



- Play prison guard.



- Crane your neck and gasp in awe at the badass fighter planes swooshing around the SF skyline.



- Escape Azkaban – I mean Alcatraz – once and for all and rejoin civilization.



- Photograph phallus-inspired architecture. (Actually, do this in all your travels.)



- Choose a building to obsess over and consider it your future dwelling place complete with private library.



- Wonder at the ironic address of the cathedral.



- Pretend you're in China.



- Be patriotic.







- Seduce a soldier.



- Pretend to be a wine connoisseur in Sonoma.



- Have fun with murals.



- Sing the theme to Full House in front of Danny Tanner's home.



- Be introspective at the Golden Gate Bridge.



- Experience a California wildfire, sort of.



- Prance around the roof of a Frank Lloyd Wright building after reading a sign expressly forbidding it.



- Get drunk at a Mexican restaurant, and take pictures of bizarre actions you won’t remember later.



- Kick ass.



- Oh, and be sure to wear flowers in your hair.



At long last I have ventured to the West Coast. I had longed to visit San Francisco for years and am happy to report that it did not disappoint. Thank you to Priscilla, my fellow traveler, and Andrew, our gracious host.
