Travel Log 2 San Francisco (Springbreak)

San Francisco, I fell in love with this city. It is full of life and vibe – great location, climate, sceneries, diverse culture, arts and people!And lots of artistic people around Berkeley area. And many other more reasons…I am running out of words. All in all, one of the best cities in the world.

Powell Street next to Union Square, just like any other streets in San Francisco, has incredibly steep uphill and downhill roads that lead to either the bay (ocean) or the center downtown, which is great for jumping on Cable Cars (standing outside of the cable cars) because it will be like riding a roller coaster 😀

Cable Car trail that can be found on every street:Image

On to the Cable Car! See the steep there?Image

By the north bay at the end station of Cable car line (Powell St – Mason St). Great breeze.Image

Seagulls – one of the prominent symbols of SF, chill out everywhere 🙂Image

Dream Log 1

Last night I had the most mystic dream of magic and wonder. And it just makes my weekend ten times even better.

The image that I remember most vividly is I was, in my dream, flying over a large landscape of plateau or scottish valleys/lands of some sort at quiet dark night (nothing, nobody, just landscape), and in front of me there is a cliff; on the top of the cliff there is a small cottage covered fully by forest green ivy, and it is so high above the rest of the world. The cliff is so tall that nothing can been seen from above where it is at, except quietness and vastness of the plain: full of Harry Potter movie feelings.

Then in my dream I flew to the front of the cliff facing the cottage window: it is as if time is reversing around that cottage, the shattered glasses hovering in the air are growing/getting back to where there were before on the window, and the whole process is like slow-motion plus time-lapse, super beautiful and magical. But everything else in the landscape is at normal time speed yet something mystic and epic is happening in that somewhat scottish/harrypotterish landscape.

And then, like watching a movie, I saw a huge opening title “Happy Potter and blah blah blah” appear just the way the glasses were growing back to the window.

Wicked. I must have been watching too much vimeo time-lapse videos. And there are many other epic things going on in the rest of the dream, but this is the only part I can recall quite vividly now. They may comeback to me anytime later (it happens a lot) hahaha.
