Hello or Konnichiwa or __ from SF --- Day 2/82

Walk: Inverness,Corte Madera, JCC, Trader Joe's
Distance: 3 miles

When I was in Portland I talked with a couple who had just returned from a vacation week in San Francisco.  Right away describing the trip she said, "I didn't realize how large the Asian population is in San Francisco."  I responded politely but was thinking something like "Get over it.."

Then today I walked to the JCC to get tickets for an event I'll go to with friends (Later ciwt post probably, stayed tuned).  The JCC is about 8 blocks from my home and nowhere remotely close to either Japantown or Chinatown - but Definitely in San Francisco.  So imagine my surprise when I walked out of the building, looked up and saw this billboard:



Now I'm the one spending a moment "getting over it..."
