San Francisco | The Conservatory of Flowers
Our friend, Ernest, was in town this weekend, so we took him to San Tung for some of their legendary wings, and followed that up by a walk in Golden Gate Park. We had free tickets to the Japanese Tea Garden, and to the Conservatory of Flowers through the SF...

Objects May Be Closer Than They Appear
A few random things before I get started. (1) There has been a lack of photos on the blog because I have not had time to take photos. Unless you count the photos I take in physics lab of me and my lab partners throwing tennis balls, but no one wants to see ...
