Event of the Moment: San Diego
Yes! I finally went on a legit vacation! So after some rants about being stagnant at home, I went with Gramps to San Diego.
It was nice to view new scenes and go people watching around SD's pier. But what really tickled my fancy was how badly dressed tourists really are. And that includes me!
Here are some prominent items tourists were wearing:
1. Teva sandals - sometimes with socks, sometimes with no socks. Either way, it looks bad.
2. Aerodynamic reflective sunglasses - supposed to deflect the sun's rays but somehow they're out of place. You're not in Tour de France, people!
3. Distraught faces - I saw myself sporting this expression when I tried boarding the trolley system. It's the face most locals love to see.
Speaking of trolleys, I thought they were trains at first because of the configuration. It's odd to see locals actually run after the "trains" because a) it is dangerous; b) it is illegal to do so in some cities and; c) there's no guarantee it's gonna wait for you.
But I will say that San Diego is a nifty, clean, charming place to live in. It's just not my scene since I'm more into the gritty stuff L.A. proudly offers. And now for pictures!
P.S.: I didn't get to go to the San Diego Zoo or Sea World or Coronado Island. Maybe next time!
