Before I moved to China I lived in San Francisco for many years. My last apartment was in a Russian-Cantonese neighborhood. My landlady was a Chinese-American lesbian with a black girlfriend. Within a ten minute walk of home I could eat Thai, Mexican, Indian, Japanese, Russian, several kinds of Chinese, and American diner. 15 minute walk away was a beach with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
There are many things I REALLY miss about San Francisco!
