Today we're off to buy some new garden slabs for our backyard.
Now and then Sarah has to work at night, like when she needs to be online with her clients in China. How she keeps herself awake? Not lots and lots of coffee as what one would expect (she is a tea drinker btw) but with lots and lots of cookie bars. You can tell by the content of the trash can its been a rough night
Walking through Chinatown makes you encounter a lot of things, like odors for example. Most of them are pleasurable, but some are not. To me Chinatown smells of food and garbage. The major streets are jam packed with vendors selling everything imaginable, edible or not. The back alleys are jam packed too, as you can see.
This blog isn't about games anymore but I feel obliged to highlight the fact that Gearbox is going to release HD remakes of the RTS golden goodies Homeworld and Homeworld 2 on PC. The company purchased the IP when THQ were sold in the beginning of 2013. Cool.
After a rather confused day we ended up in our favorite pizza restaurant in Marin County: Round Table in Mill Valley. I'm very picky when it comes to pizzas, even pickier than Sarah. But this is da shit. I dream of this pizza for days after we've been here. Just look at this beauty!
You all know of the tragic crash at SFO. Scary. But we know the authorities did a great job and still do taking care of victims and relatives and many airlines are waiving their change-ticket fees for all travellers who have to return home while the airport still has excessive delays. Oakland's and San José's airports are used to take care of diverted flights, which normally are due to foggy conditions on the peninsula. Speaking of flights, we have our plane tickets ready for Sweden on the 14th of July but it looks like we have to cancel them. Sarah got a new "summer contract" a few weeks ago and it ends in early August and is worth a lot of money. So it looks like our trip to Sweden has to wait until later.

Can you believe it. This picture is taken in one of the best Indian/Pakistani restaurants in the US. It's actually been rated among the 50 top restaurants in the country. It's authentic, it's shabby, dirty and greasy. It's food heaven. We're talking Shalimar on Jones street, folks.
People around Bay Area are waking up this Monday morning earlier than usual. Much earlier if they rely on the BART. The much feared strike is here. It's gonna take forever to go to work. This is why we have a car AND three different places to stay: Livermore, Sausalito and San Francisco. Yes, I know it sounds awfully crazy but being married to the most pragmatic wife in the world - you got to be omnipresent.
