Weekend in Review
Cirque du Soleil was incredible. We laughed. We cried. The performance is fast and furious. The humour is very unique. Trips will be planned to see other shows. Spent the weekend in San Francisco. Visited Alcatraz and then jumped on our hotel bed that was wider than the jail cells. Enjoyed the Chinese New Year parade, even though it poured rain for the second half. Damn those firecrackers are loud! On Sunday, we guiltily watched the protest march from atop the Hilton hotel restaurant, Cityscape. Sipping champagne and munching on caviar on the 46th floor in front of 20 foot windows. Impressive. Our friends drove into town to hang out with us and we walked around nob hill and washington square being tourists. I have a picture of Tracey holding the Transamerica Pyramid between her fingers that I'll have to dig up. Delicious aphrodisiac dinner at Millenium Sunday night, a sleep at the Savoy Hotel, then back to Palo Alto on Monday morning to hang out, walk around downtown and get ready for Tracey's flight out. And that was just the weekend. I think her total visit was the fastest 10 days I've had in a long time.
