This evening, we went out for Mexican food and again consulted yet another listing, that is a menu.
Tomorrow it will be much the same although we’ll have a better familiarity with the town’s layout. And we will have the Lonely Planet Guide in hand.
I remember being in Amsterdam a few years ago. I was alone – it wasn’t near as much fun, conferring about what listings to check. I did all this by myself. Being with El is way more fun. Conferring over listed items is way more fun.
The odd thing is that now when I hear someone say “make a list” I automatically begin making a long list of mental inferences, inferences based upon what I have been thinking about in writing about listing. Lists, really, they are everywhere.
There are, for example, all over, lists of dos and don’ts, the best place to find such things are in laundromats. There are lists in guide books of places to eat, things to see, places to go.
Tomorrow we will get up early and start to deliberate as to what we might do – I might suggest that we even make a list. Since we have the map and book we might not feel the need to do this. If the weather permits, we will go and walk across the Golden Gate bridge. And on the way back to where we are staying, we will cruise along Fisherman’s wharf. Most definitely, this will continue to be a joint effort.
Slowly, ever so slowly, I am elaborating on my a to z list. It’s like being in quicksand.
