As I mentioned in my last post, the second installment of From the Window Seat, I was in San Francisco, CA, for a few days last week for an academic conference. I was hoping to spend some time exploring the city, but the weather deterred me from doing much more than going to the conference, eating, and occasional shopping. It was my third time attending the conference, and I still haven’t done some of the more touristy things. It’s kind of a bummer! I would love to visit the city for an actual vacation sometime. It’s so stressful trying to fit in sight-seeing around a bunch of posters, talks, and other science-y things going on during the conference. Conferences are exhausting, and I had no problem falling asleep well before midnight during the week because of it.
Regardless, I did manage to visit a couple of new places this time around–the Ferry Building and a portion of Little Italy. Here’s some snapshots from those places and the usual sights, such as Union Square. Hope you enjoy and are having a lovely Christmas Eve Eve Eve! 😉
