Week 1

golden gate bridge

Arrived on the 30th July and took me until at least Sunday 4th to be on the right timezone.

Supermarkets here are terrible. Everything has novelty features, added this or that, less of something else. Nothing is just “milk” or “bread”. Farmers’ markets are likely to mediate what we cook at home.

Spent the weekend at FOOcamp, which felt rather deep-end for my first weekend here. Lots of interesting people and chat.

Took first pass at looking at flats to buy – modern or edwardian?

Visited Code for America and San Francisco City Hall tech teams.

Have eaten at least 3 grilled cheese products and 2 breakfasts bigger than my head. Will be interesting to see how much heavier I am when we get our stuff off the boat (incl. scales).

Walked ~26 miles.
