Here are a few photos from the SFO International Airport this morning. They have fabulous exhibits there. There were 3 exhibits: Automata: vintage mechanical French puppet-like figures, some of which seemed alive; a stunning exhibit of vintage Italian motorcycles; an exhibit of old microscopes.
Vancouver is one of my favorite cities, similar in many ways to San Francisco. (I'm in Canada for 12 days to do slideshow/book signings and interviews. Schedule is here.)
I got into my hotel too early to check in, so I've taken one of their (free) bikes out and am touring around the Granville Market/West 4th St./Kitsilano area, checking out shops, detouring through neighborhoods which are strangely quiet. I like being plopped down in unfamiliar territory where everything is new. Serendipity abounds. Running across the unexpected. Stay tuned; ride shotgun with me this next week.
