Whoa! Is Pride a Sin? --- Day 3/167

Walk: Opera House (La Traviata)
Distance: 4.5 miles 

A kind of Only in San Francisco juxtaposition today around the Opera Plaza/City Center convergence.  On the one hand we had Ciwt, etc. at the Opera House watching La Traviata.  For those who don't know (like Ciwt once), it is an opera that revolves around morality: social and religious pressures force a dying young woman to give up the man she loves because 1. she has been a courtesan in her earlier years and 2. she and her love are living together without - are you prepared? - being married.  

On the other hand, just a block or so away, the Gay Pride Parade 2014, celebrating sexual freedom, was just wrapping up and dissolving into a total - and well-earned - party.
