SF; sun and fog

I was very disorganized this morning, so apologies to everyone who waited somewhere for me and thanks to everyone who steered me around. Virgin economy food: just say eeeuw. Landed early, drove around looking for a parking space. Meeting Ian M for a chat and a lift from SFO into SF turned out to be a fun detour to Treasure Island...

It was sunny until I got to the W where they had already looked me up and asked if Simon was coming too. They have put lights into the lift area so you no longer trip over your suitcase. My room has a shower curtain that floods the bathroom and a great view of the Marriott (hi everyone!) and Yerba Buena, where there was some kind of drumming dancing parade masquerade. Lots of cosplay costumes in town; need a stick-out skirt and waist-skimming corset!

All change at the Marriott; the bar at the top has gone and the bar with the fountains is a restaurant and the bar is an oversized sofa nook. Off to chinatown with Ian and Iain and Rupert for honey walnut prawns and then over to Annabel's for drinks and tiramisu that counts as a cocktail. Speakeasy Prohibition Ale splendidly hoppy. Fall down go boom now...
