American Airlines redeemed themselves yesterday on my flight back to Boston from San Francisco. They showed a movie called The Truth About Charlie, featuring Mark Wahlberg, Tim Robbins and some J.Lo look-alike. It was a spy caper of sorts that wasn’t amazing or anything, but certainly kept my attention, unlike the afrementioned Simone, which just made me me laugh with pity for the actors who accepted those roles.

San Francisco, as usual, was just beautiful. Every time I go there, the desire to move there increases. It may not have the historic scenery of Boston, but it’s got perfect weather, easy navigation and everywhere you look the scenery is just stunning. Additionally, I stayed at The Hotel Del Sol, which was quite a treat. I took the following two pictures – night and day – of the four trees in the middle courtyard of the hotel.

Pretty cool, ay? You can see the rest of the pictures from my trip by simply clicking here. While I was taking one of these pictures, two co-workers of mine claim that Robin Williams drove by and dropped off his kids for school, then gave my co-workers the thumb’s up. I didn’t see it happen, but I did see a super-nice car pull up next to theirs and some kids get out, so I’ll take their word for it. Maybe.

One more thing – really – please click on this link, which puts the hills of San Francisco into great perspective. This is my favorite picture from the whole trip. Howz about that?
