Happy 2005 to you all.
Don't know how many of you are going to the annual APA conf. coming up in San Francisco. My wife and I will be in the East Bay area around that time, visitng daughter and husband and new grandson. but likely will not have time to get to the APA conf.
Anyway, I wanted to throw this out to all you planners? What is it, from a planners' perspective, that makes San Francisco such a unique and attractive city? Assuming that you feel it is. If not, share that.
But anyway, I think about it each time I visit. Obviously the steep hills, and the setting by the bay, the fog rolling in and out. The cable cars. But the people always impress me as well---so friendly and so happy to live there, for the most part. And so innovative on ways to perform, etc. and support themselves with donations. Like those who balance rocks down toward the waterfront.
So if you've ever left your heart in San Francisco, share it with us. If you didn't like it and hurried back out to the airport, let us hear from you as well. If you are a Barry Bonds fan, well.....
