"The weather forecast for the next year is sunny with light breezes with a high of 75 to 80 Fahrenheit, lows tonight will be 60 to 65." Is it any wonder that San Diego is the second or third most expensive city in the entire country? Its competitors are San Francisco and New York. San Diego's transit system stinks - many of the buses run every half hour, even on weekdays. On the weekends, I recommend keeping your meditation pillow with you if you have a long trip. La Jolla is the ritzy northern suburb with the lovely coast (and the nice aquarium). There's lots of good seafood wherever you turn in San Diego, but the seafood watch list we got at the aquarium warned us away from most locally produced seafood (like shark) so we ate local shrimps and east coast scallops. Ironic, and not overly environmentally friendly. The friend I was staying with was attending the annual American Public Health Association Conference at the Conference Center, which (partly) explains the five photos of that building. It's pretty neat. And I didn't even take a picture of their round external funicular elevator. No joke.
