Yesterday it took me nearly 3 hours to get from the Ferry Building to Fort Point. I wandered all over, waited for a cable car to cross at Grant and California, just like a tourist, and I loved every minute. I was designing a sight-seeing ride for visitors coming from Japan later this month. I'm really getting excited about showing them our town. This is the first time I'll be able to repay a tiny bit of the hospitality shown to me when I've traveled over there.
