Funemployment Diary, Entry #19: Even More Hints of My Activities and Whereabouts

Today’s the last day of my secret side trip. I thought I’d drop a few more hints of where I am and what I’m up to. I got up, had some noodles for breakfast and got dressed, as you can see above. I rather like this look.

My local benefactors are wonderfully generous. Not only did they give me a place to crash, they even loaned me their “beater” car! It drives like a dream, and my only quibble is that the GPS could stand to have a much better user interface. If that’s not a First World Problem, I don’t know what is.

It took me a half hour to reach my destination, and it took me half that time to find a place to park.

Between the parking lot and my destination, a poem.

I spent from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in a place that had the view pictured above.

Afterwards, a coffee break at a little boulangerie, some more walking about, and then dinner with friends.

Tomorrow, it’s an early bird flight to Tampa and back to Anitra. Tomorrow night, we’re going to be like this.

Joey – can you pick up some Meyer lemons and bring them home if you can? Thanks, RC

Okay, so from the clues and the pictures, you’re pretty obviously in San Francisco and the SF Bay area now. You had to drive in, so you’re likely not actually staying in San Francisco itself. You walked by Yerba Buena Gardens to get to the corner of 2nd St and Minna St. Am I close?

I did find one high-tech company in that building that has a software development focus… something about easy payment processing solutions without having to deal with the headache of PCI requirements.
