Ooops, it's been a while

We've been in our new place for 42 days. Here's a map of our neighborhood, the Lower Haight. I like the area.

There are lots of restaurants and markets near by. So far our favorites are the Little Chihuahua, which is a Mexican food place that uses local foods, and Love'n Haight, which is a sandwich place with tons of veggie options. There's also a total hole in the wall place, Cu Co's Restaurant, that has amazing plantain burittos.

We've found a fun co-op bulk foods store called Rainbow Grocery. It's not really close, but has some good deals. We've been getting some great granola from there. And Martin has been getting lots of flour for his bread making efforts.

Martin also got a new phone. He's been taking lots of pictures on it and uploading them directly from the phone to his Flickr account. Here's a link to the photos - You'll see some shots from our walk to Japantown, Martin's bread, and that famous SF fog.

I'm still on the job hunt. I had three interviews last week and one next week. I'm getting really good at the "getting an interview" part. It's the "getting the job offer" part that I'm currently struggling with. Martin's been commuting with a co-worker who has a car so he hasn't been taking the train lately.

That's all for now. I'll try to get some pictures of our apartment posted soon!

I see he shares his sisters camera eye. Nice pics... Sounds like there are some nice places to eat when we come to visit. How was your first earthquake? Did it mess up the bread making process?
