Long day in San Francisco - I attended the special liturgy celebrated at the National Shrine of St. Francis. Attendance wasn't too bad, but for now the Latins remain safe from "poaching" by the Russians. I took a walk around the area; American Eatery closed at 4 (early?) so I didn't get a burger there. In Union Square I bumped into ah Fai in front of Macy - so I spent the rest of the afternoon with him, dropping by the Merrell store - the Trail Glove wide fit ok, but it bothered my MN, so I didn't get them. I should have tried a normal pair of Merrell shoes, instead of the minimalist, but I didn't want to try some of those and end up not buying anything. We went to Uniqlo, where I bought some socks. For dinner we decided to try Bourbon Steak; overall the experience wasn't as good as AS, but perhaps I am biased.
