Opening a bag of peanuts at Seals Stadium; the custard at Fosters on 5th and Mint; crabs cooking at Fisherman's wharf; the perfume on women walking down Post Street; the Zoo in the fog; the grease on the roller coaster tracks at Playland; any smell in North Beach; the open markets in China town; the old breweries-must have been 10 of them just south of Market; the gardenias on the flower carts near Union Square...one could go blind and still find the City to be one of the most beautiful places on earth.
