San Francisco has only one drawback - ’tis hard to leave.
– Rudyard Kipling
A stroll around the old French Quarter of New Orleans, the weather as hot and steamy as the city’s reputation; dinner and theater, of course, in vibrant New York, a sidle up to an ice cream truck to appease our sweet tooth, vanilla for her, chocolate for me; and now a morning under the fog at the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market and lunch in San Francisco. Dianne Jacob and I have made it a rule and a tradition to spend time together whenever we are lucky enough to find ourselves at the same conference. I flew to her city, San Francisco and together we wended our way over to and through the market, snapping photos and ogling the great foods and products, chatting away the morning.
