San Francisco is a wrap. The screening went extremely well, and this time around, I fell in love with the city a little more than I had in previous trips.
This time around I spent most of my time in and around the Tenderloin neighborhood, and have decided that every other place in San Francisco is boring by comparison. It’s insane and dingy and I could spend a month exploring just the one area and never get bored of it’s crazyness.
I am sort of obsessed with textures, and I love graffiti. Tenderloin has more than enough of both for me to enjoy for ages.
I found a Turkish restaurant while skyping with Christine, so she looked them up and told me what I could order that would be the same as what her and the kids are eating in Turkey. It was my first time eating turkish food, I ordered ispanakli borek (spinach and cheese pastry), and the kid’s favorite, a cheese pide.
Before the screening I could not decide if I should drink a coffee or a beer for my nerves. I chose coffee, which very quickly seemed like overkill. When I said as much on Facebook my friend Tiffiney suggested I just go get a beer too. It was a very smart idea.
The screening went even better than Seattle. There were more people who simply found the film through Eventbrite or some other means, with no ties to Christine or myself, who told me after the film that they really enjoyed it.
And too quickly, my time was up. I write this from Quincy, CA where there will be a free screening to the public on Friday the 27th. If you happen to be in the area, I’d love to meet you and show you The Wireless Generation.
