Rolando Street Fair

A short time back, I attended the Rolando Street Fair, a one-day event where they blocked off a road and filled it with fun activities, games, food vendors, local business booths, and a stage with live music.

Scared to Leave

I had a minor freak-out session this morning. I started thinking about all the things I will miss from the U.S. when I go to Armenia for two years, and everything that I want to do before I leave. The time I have left here is running short—one month in San Diego, and one month… Read More »

Maybe it’s best to let the following video show you more: Wobble Bobble I watched for a long… Read More »

December in San Diego, Part II

I went down to the harbor the other night to watch the Christmas Parade of Lights, where people decorate their boats with Christmas lights and do a parade on the water. It started at 5:30 p.m., quite a distance away from where I was sitting on the pier in Seaport Village. So after the initial… Read More »

December in San Diego, Part I

I was at the beach last Sunday. Ocean Beach in San Diego. It seems surfing is pretty popular here. All those shapes you see in the water? Those are all surfers. I’m thinking about taking surfing lessons myself, joining the throngs. Click to watch video: awesome-december-surfing-san-diego Looks pretty thrilling to me!
