Yesterday. Up at 0500. Coffee. Shave. Long sleeves? Yeah... Out the door at 0530. Burbank 0615, Southwest to Oakland. ZZZzzz... stretch! Rent world's ugliest car*. Onward to Berkeley! Slight sun, wind breezy. In the town, cute. *The* University of California beckons. Excited!
Tour at 1000... our guide Nick is awesome.
Both jazzed, Berkeley was cool. And impressive. And exciting. We could both see Alex there. Onward. Across the Bay Bridge. Find USF. Have time. Lunch! In Haight-Ashbury, cool.
Up up to the Lone Mountain. Tour at 1430. Long Powerpoint. Blech. Walking tour better...
Now 0430. Have time. Tea... Debrief. Back over Bay Bridge. Dinner 1730 at Five Bistro in Berkeley. Steak + Pinot + sorbet. Nice. Back to OAK. Return car. Wait [forever] for shuttle. Security. Run to gate. Whew. Southwest to Burbank. ZZZzzz... yawn. And home! A good great day.
