    Just upload the pics to an album on imgur.com and then post the links using the "insert image" above the post box. Easy peazy.

    Today, as it's Sunday, I suppose, Korean gospel singers planted themselves in Union Square with loudspeakers and electric guitars to make joyful noises unto the Lord...no obvious interest from the many Asian passers-by but the local street loonies occasionally joined in to thank Jebus for their cardboard mats. Spent the morning at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park: fairly extensive aquarium fauna, but nothing unusual on display...a few assembled dinosaur skeletons to impress visiting children along with entertaining planetarium shows. Surprisingly good cafeteria that served the masses efficiently and sent them on their way well fed. The only drawback, unfortunately, is that some parents allowed their spawn to run free with the volume set to 11...still the visit and lunch were worth it...

    ...out on the streets later: Michael Jackson Billy Jeaning around homeless harassers on Market St to the delight of crowds of Asians who may not have realized that a few coins tossed in his direction would have been appreciated...a cocktail before bed ends the day's events for me...I may have lost SD, however, to a nearby Target...might be able to squeeze in another cocktail before he gets back...

    Enjoyed the Edvard Munch exhibition at the SF MOMA yesterday...good to see a number of young people in the crowds interested in this artist. "The Scream" wasn't included in the collection on display, but it was a fairly comprehensive review of Ed's work.

    Our group of four had lunch at the art museum's In Situ restaurant: a sort of tasting menu celebrating internationally famous chefs...my favorites included the Japanese wasabi lobster, the Turkish lamb shank ravioli and a glorified garden salad that included "moss sponge"...Domaine Chandon Brut to accompany: wonderful day in SF.

    SD and I enjoyed the best Jap cuisine we've ever eaten last night: we followed the Jap-American waiter's suggestions for sashimi, negiri and sushi and enthusiastically ingested such treats as tuna belly, big-eye tuna, scallop, crab claw (cooked) and an interesting variety of different fish...all alarmingly fresh and flavorful. We ordered endamame in sea salt for extra carbs: delicious when served steaming and lightly salted. I had an Orion beer to accompany: my first beverage from Okinawa...not bad at all...

    The restaurant (Akiko's) has only 10 tables and seats by reservation: no walk-ins. Lots of disappointed faces as folks were turned away to face the Arctic streets of SF...I wonder what became of them...

    I can imagine the scene outside the restaurant (of disappointed people walking away) in the style of LS Lowry.

    Magnificent Degas exhibition at the Legion of Honor museum: he was deeply focused on women's hats, apparently...the museum store had a number of hats reproduced from his paintings for sale. Proust kept coming to mind as he and the artist were contemporaries.

    Lunch of mussels, flounder and a grilled mushroom and eggplant sandwich accompanied by a Domaine Chandon blanc de noir sparkling wine in Marin and on to last minute shopping in Sausalito. Back for the last night in the St. Francis...time to pack up, enjoy a JWB and wait for the uber to SFO...a wonderful vacation in all!

    TC,

    Have you managed to squeeze in some Dungeness crab during your visit? If you can, I'd recommend it very highly. It's the king of crabs in my opinion.

    The closest I got was the claw meat of a hairy crab at Akiko's...saw it on offer elsewhere (at a Vietnamese, I think)...
