Crissy Field
A restored tidal marsh popular for walking, jogging, or bike riding for both locals and tourists. I often use this trail on urban walks from Downtown through Chinatown, North Beach, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Marina, and out to the Golden Gate Bridge, sometimes beyond into Sausalito or the Marin Headlands.

The Presidio has quite a collection of rare and endangered plant species, many of them endemic to coastal habitat that used to cover much of the city but now survives only here. The most exciting recent news came with the rediscovery of a single specimen of the Franciscan manzanita, 60 years after it was previously believed to have gone extinct in the wild, during construction work for the Doyle Drive replacement project (previous picture). Perhaps not as dramatic a survival story, but this is Lessingia germanorum (San Francisco lessingia), another endangered plant found almost exclusively in The Presidio—the only known population outside of the park is in Daly City. You can find them easily this time of year in the Lobos Dunes area or near the Public Service Health Hospital, thanks to replanting efforts.

Which part of the City (San Fran) did you get that Kari Ayam? And by the way, I happen to live north of the city... wherein I pass by the Marina and the Exploratorium area nearly every weekday.

Technically, Union Square, since that's where Indonesia Day is typically held, but to more "faithfully" answer your question, Borobodur. Their main restaurant is in the Tenderloin.

Aha. I think I know where Borobodur restaurant is. Ever tried eating at Straits at Westfield? I tried their Murtabak for weekend brunch, and it was lovely.

Hm, I went there once several years ago for a weekday lunch... Can't remember what I ordered, but I remember liking it. Unfortunately, I don't get to eat out as much as I'd like, since I try to watch my wallet and my waist.

Ah ok. If you have a chance, visit Straits again once in a while... I usually order their Singapore-style chicken curry, which I really like. By the way, what part of the City you live in?

I live near the southern edge, close to Daly City.

I'm closer to OMI or the Excelsior, but I've been to Stonestown plenty of times... I still remember when they used to have Petrini's (supermarket), Brentano's (bookstore), and, more recently, the big Borders store.

Oh, the Excelsior. I like the area, especially you're pretty close to Mission Street... but, yes, I really like the big Borders at the mall. Now, that is replaced by Sports Authority.

Some pictures from this small mountain down in Fremont. Not a good place if you want some solitude on your hike, but you can definitely get a good workout.

I remember a lot of passengers grumbling when these Van Hools were first introduced… They’re pretty much a staple now all across AC Transit’s network.

Forget sports and movie packages… The diversity of today’s suburbs offers new business avenues in the Comcast–AT&T cable wars.

The strip of developed land along the East Bay shoreline gets quite thin down by Fremont, hemmed in by bay sloughs and salt flats on the west and the hills on the east.
