Ah, yes, the conga drummers at Aquatic Park!!! I remember spending entire summer days down there with my Lincoln High buddies, listening, playing along, dancing....then the wind would begin blowing hard, and the cold fog would blow in and we would head for home...back to the Outer Sunset (where it had been foggy all day long!)

There were also conga drummers that gathered at "Hippie Hill" (which was a small mound of grass in the meadow near the Chidren's Playground and Merry Go-Round in Golden Gate Park). Yes, San Francisco has a sound and rhythm all it's own!
