CX879

The airfare on Cathay Pacific (HKG: 0293 HK$12.98) from San Francisco to Hong Kong, then Taipei, and returning from Beijing is exactly double the amount of JetBlue (JBLU US$20) from New York to San Francisco. But CX allows two pieces of luggage. Two meals. Entertainment. Wine. Snacks such as Toblerone, Ferrero Rocher and cup noodles. Oh, also prettier girls. JetBlue serves water and chips. The flight attendants are much older. I’ve nothing against it but just stating the fact.

Sausal Creek

This little stream is next to Dimond Park in Oakland. Houses on the steep cliff, don’t know if I could sleep tight in the night. The dogs are enjoying the walk too.

Dimond park

The Dimond Lion’s outdoor pool, off Wellington St, opens year around.  The construction is to clean up the creek, putting in bathrooms, etc. Hope next time I can visit it.

Wellington St off Park Blvd.

Some charming houses and landscape in Oakland CA, on a froggy morning. The New York Times on the driveway. Very hilly.
