Day 5: took the VERY scenic drive to San Francisco from Reno. Almost took the short detour to Lake Tahoe, but no time – gotta meet Aaron for dinner. Reached San Francisco area in about 4 hours (would have been closer to 3 had I not encountered rush hour traffic near the destination.
Met Aaron at a Portuguese restaurant called Fresca on Fillmore. We had a really goo seafood dinner, after which I went and crashed on his sofa. Nice day!
