– I’ve walked to the hardware store, the pet store, the book store and the coffee shop. Other people were walking too.
– Most people are friendly, and not in a fake way.
– People bicycle a lot.
– I rarely drive, when I do it isn’t far and I fill up gas rarely.
– On Groundhog Day I walked to breakfast without a jacket. I’d take four more weeks of this kind of winter.
– I don’t think I’ve had a single dish with cilantro. I did have excellent Lengua guisada yesterday for lunch. I’ve also had a lamb burger with duck confit and Kim Chee tacos.
– I’ve seen one or two smoggy days so far but the only day the air actually didn’t feel clean was the afternoon I arrived in Salt Lake City.
– I learned that people in LA often find it rude when you run your windshield cleaner in traffic. I did not find this put through personal experience.
– Parking will often cost you a couple bucks in meter or valet tips but its never been the impossible situation it often was for me in San Francisco.
– The fresh meat selection at Trader Joes is vastly inferior to what it was in Novato and Petaluma. I guess the restaurants buy all the good steaks.
