Veni, Vidi, Vomit!

We came, we saw, we puked. Our trip to the Bay Area was great, aside from a bout of food poisoning that took us out of commission for 24 hours or so. We're not sure what caused it, but it was definitely something we ate that did not agree with us.

Our flight got in Saturday afternoon, we picked up a rental car, and drove through some traffic to Emeryville in the east bay, to have dinner with Michelle and Stu, and Malena and Graham, our hosts for the week. It was a long travel day but we stayed awake for a dinner of cedar-planked salmon and mashed potatoes with salad. The cheese from before dinner also served as the dessert after dinner, along with something called limoncello that was an alcohol-lemonade the likes of which I've never seen.

Sunday was brunch and hanging out, with a BART ride into the city proper and an afternoon at the restored ferry building. Oysters consumed that afternoon are on the list of possible suspects.

Monday we went with Malena to Japan Town and like fools, decided to walk from there to City Lights Bookstore. We made it, but on the return trip we caught a cab and realized how far we had actually walked.

Tuesday was essentially lost to illness, but Malena learned how to knit, and we just took it easy for the duration of our stay.

There were many breakfasts, the obligatory visit to Kimono My House, and a fine time was had by all.
