I am here in San Francisco and still alive despite the invading hordes of English and Foreign Language Professors who are taking over the city. My friend and roommate for the trip is the lovely Deebeecooper, who has attended these things before and is helping me figure out the massive 300-page conference program. For example: there are various societies, all of whom have cash bars during the week. There is a Marxist cash bar – doesn’t that seem counterintuitive?
We had a lovely Christmas dinner in Chinatown (the only place with open restaurants on Christmas) and have also eaten Indian, Thai, and Japanese food so far. Needless to say, we’re loving all the dining options that are sorely lacking in our rural university towns. Hope you all are excellent! More later!
P.S. I wrote this post on my phone. Yay technology!
