San Diego

This week I'm in San Diego for work. I've probably been here 10 times for work, but this week is somewhat significant. It's very c0ld in back home in Illinois and for the first time, I'm happy to be somewhere warm and sunny, as opposed to cold and freezing. San Diego seems like a weird place though. It's very spread out, but very consistently... crowded. The geography of San Diego is filled with lesser-mountains, valleys and palm trees. The temperature is constantly 70-80 degrees with less than 30% humidity. The signal that winter is 'officially here' is that the temperature stays in the 70's. The highways are incredibly crowded. The local cuisine is predominantly Mexican and Asian, different from the Midwest. It is difficult to find a good place to eat steak and or burgers. When it does rain, it is very little and people react as if the world is ending, sliding all over the place. The cost of living is ridiculous. One homemade flier I saw listed a 900 sq ft house for $400,000.00. They charged $25 to read the ad (I'm kidding).

Tomorrow someone is supposed to look at the house, let's hope they put in a bid.
