In California!

Anastasia and I have successfully traversed the continental divide yesterday, and are just north of San Francisco in my hometown of Petaluma. We have some time between now and our Monday engagement with Michael Pollan, so between now and then it is an open book. I know Frank is itching to go sight-seeing, and might drag us to the California Academy of Sciences today. Will they let him pass through Marin County, though, what with the ban and all?
Our lunch date with Michael has been moved to dinner, and given that we will be leaving early Tuesday morning to return to the Midwest, that doesn’t leave much time for reflection. We’ll see what we can do while we are still in the same place, but there will certainly be much to talk about on the blog post-Chez Panisse.
