I had a lovely time celebrating my birthday in San Francisco. As much as I love living in a rural area, it is so cool going into the city for the Christmas holiday. We took the cable car down to Union Square (well almost to Union Square–we had to walk part of the way) and had dinner at the marvelous Kuleto’s. We did a little shopping at Macy’s afterward then caught a cab back to the hotel. Even the cab was an adventure–nothing like jetting up the steep San Francisco hills, then hovering at the top where you can’t see the road on the other side. Talk about a leap of faith.
