I met up with my friend Nida in the afternoon and we decided to take Shorty, her fluffy Maltese pooch whom i adore, on a walk around the city. We strolled about North Beach and Nob Hill, catching up and admiring the beautiful scenery. Walks in San Francisco never get boring. I'm still so in love with every aspect of this city: the architecture, views of the Bay, cable cars...and even just "people" watching. Every city has its diversity and interesting characters, but native San Franciscan's really do stand out to me. There are so many pet lovers, hipsters, musicians, free-spirited hippies who just hang around in the park holding hands and dancing to their own beats (I'm not kidding, I actually did observe this earlier today). I appreciate these people though. They are part of the reason why I love living here. San Francisco just wouldn't be complete without the eccentric personalities.
