From Los Angeles I hitched a ride with my friends David and James (and his black lab Jessie) up to San Francisco. I stayed in Emeryville with David and his Nana for about a week which gave me plenty of time to explore the Bay area. Much time was spent at the bar where David works called The Albatross. It is Berkeley’s oldest bar and boasts a good beer selection, a popcorn machine and 6 lanes of darts. I spent a few nights playing darts with a shark by the name of Joe. He’d been all over the world throwing darts and taught me some new games and gave some tips like a Dart Yoda. I also passed the time watching action movies such as Rambo: First Blood with Nana and going to Sausalito and Japantown with David and his mom.
