In the course of running an errand yesterday, I took my first trip to the Haight/Ashbury district of San Francisco. (I ended up about one block from the intersection of Haight & Ashbury.) I hadn't been there before and didn't know what to expect. The store fronts and hippie style clothes were definitely unusual to see. I half-expected to see smoke shops in the area. One guy I did notice was this white guy I saw there who had dreadlocks in his hair. I don't suppose there's anything wrong with that, but it did look strange on him.
I was surprised at the number of people on the streets during the middle of the day. One day I'll have to go back there and just wander around on foot to see what all is there. It definitely looks like an interesting part of San Francisco.
