Why I love living in the Bay Area

While most of the rest of the Northern Hemisphere is buried in snow, here in Berkeley it is 20C (68F) and forecast to be sunny all week. Yesterday we went to Stinson Beach and played frisbee and waded (ok, so the water was freezing) and had icecreams on the way home.

I even like walking to work, there's a feeling of history at UC Berkeley, even if some of it is a little cheesy like the Free Speech Movement Cafe. I like that there are places here that are iconic, like the People's Park and the Campanile, and even the shops on Telegraph.

I love the views of the bay and Golden Gate Bridge. And even though I don't go into San Francisco much, I love that the city is right there.

Anyone want to come and visit me?
