and Alcatraz in the distance.        to SF. took almost
Photo by McKinney Photos     13 hours.  But it was very
Printed in Korea  Scenic and quite confortable - enough
leg room for me to stretch out completely.
>From the train station (Oakland) there was a
connecting bus over the Bay bridge (picture) into
the heart of the city.  From there it was a short
taxi ride to the James Court hotel ($198 for a
week, in a nice room with a double bed and my
own bathroom).  // Today has been spent doing
touristy things - catching the cable car, visiting
the maritime museum, and wandering around
downtown - and making the best imitation of
a bookshop crawl possible when one has to
find the bookshops by brute-force searching!)
(I was a good boy; only bought the one book).
I've just used up my phone card talking to Sea
and Sue and arranging various things - have
to go buy another one, as all my quarters are
for the washing machine... (In the US, all
one needs is a large stack of quarters and
a credit card - I only touch my large notes when I want some quarters as change :)
I'm spending too much money - I'm just within my budget.   Time to go to
                                                           sleep.  Love, Danny
