I'm really not sure where I'll be going with this. I will definitely be taking a lot of pictures and talking about the day to day issues that will come up here. I'll always be looking at things with a comparative lens, see how things line up here versus Montreal. I don't know if I'll be as focused on municipal politics here, as it is just so massive and I don't know much about it, but you never know.
My immediate impressions are that the flora in Berkeley is astoundingly beautiful and varied. It's like some bourgeois high-taste pastoral fantasy. San Francisco is architecturally beautiful, just so much to look at on every block. The west coast politically correct thing is not exaggerated (I'll be getting to that). And medical marijuana is the hot new growth industry. Oh yeah, and everybody seems to have an iPad.
More to come, so stay tuned!
