Eh, the traffic ain’t so bad.

I was reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas whilst eating my morning Banana Pancake when I came across a paragraph in which Thompson describes his drug-fueled all night drives in the Bay Area. He mentioned the lights in the Treasure Island tunnel and I realized that for all the bitching everyone does about the traffic on the Bay Bridge, crossing into the city at night – or early morning – is really something to behold.

Then I overheard two vacationing contractors talk about how, collectively, they’ve been to almost every major city in the US and nothing beats San Francisco.

Nothing like being half a world away to make you appreciate home.

Now here’s some REALLY bad traffic:

The traffic rules don’t make any sense in this city. Sometimes the lights will last for 5 minutes creating huge waves of traffic. Blake and I got stuck on a median as we got flooded on either side.

Notice: the traffic on either side is going the SAME way. What the hell is the median for!
