As mentioned in my previous blog, I am in San Diego at the moment. We have had a great two weeks, mostly included a lot of alcohol and socialising, seeing people we haven't seen for years...lots of catch up to do. After a lot of late nights and a few very busy days (weddings etc.), I was really looking forward to a few quiet days 'dog sitting' in an apartment next to Balboa Park. We arrived straight from the wedding party, about 2am and went straight to bed. At 6am, I was rudely awakened by loud music, right outside our window. The San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon was just getting under way. Having never been to a marathon, I foolishly was relieved, when at last, after speeches etc. over the speaker system, to hear the countdown from 10 to 1 to start the race. What I did not realise was that there was going to be more than one start. After the '27' waves, ten came the street cleaning team...so much for my relaxing start to the day.
Apart from that, San Diego has been wonderful. If you ever get the chance, you should visit. It has lovely beaches, a waterfront area, trolley's, a vibrant night live, lots of bands and happy hours; and of course Balboa park. My only criticism are the prices..beer and food..the nightlife comes at a cost.
