Vacation, the San Francisco Treat

And I'm back. It was a hell of a trip. A guy here at work phrased it as a "Vacation of the Fittest". We did a lot, and we just scratched the surface of the City. To cover it all, I'll be dolling out the details over a few days and multiple posts to help those of you who like things in bite sizes.

Saturday (Day 1)

The flight was pretty great. No airport horror stories. This was my first flight on Midwest, and my first post airline bankruptcy flight. I mention it because we had to buy our lunch on the plane. They had these little boxed things for 5 or 10 bucks. Not a lot of food, but at least it tasted decent. Of course we also got our in flight cookie that Midwest is so famous for.

We landed and picked up our Kia Rental Van. Let me take this time for a Public Service Announcement. Kia Sucks. The Van had 5,000 miles on it, and bounced down the road like we were seated on a trampoline. Reports from the backseat also indicated that taking turns was equivalent to a 3 ticket carnie ride. I guess their 10 year warranty guarantees that it's a piece of shit, and will continue to be a piece of shit for the full 10 year.

We left the airport and began to learn about driving in San Francisco. Now this truly was a treat, because contrary to popular belief, the left turn doesn't exist. If you insanely decided you needed to go left, you must properly execute the 'cisco maneuver. This entailed driving past the street you wanted followed by 3 right turns. Now throw in the occasional one way street, construction, our amazing bouncing clown van, and trolleys... so here's a tip, they have amazing public transportation. Use it.

Thank you for confirming my feelings about KIA's. Koreans are only slightly better at making cars then yugoslavians.
