Well, the times have changed. I posted on the Micro Economics Board (because of the diversity there), about a trip I am planning to SF (at that time in October of 2013). My former roommate is coming to visit me from Japan (she moved back to take care of her elderly parents) and can stay for 3 months. She will probably come in April, 2014 and stay until June. On her way back, we will both fly (or ride the train) to San Francisco from Columbia, SC and stay a few days. I have been there but only for 1-1/2 days while on layover for a trip to Hawaii.

We do want to see Fisherman's Wharf (probably eating our way through it), and China Town. Everything else is up for grabs. When there previously, I stayed at the Mark Hopkins and ate at the Top of the Mark, but Yoko and I will be on a fairly tight budget, as both of us are now retired.

All suggestions would be most appreciated. Suggestions include accommodations (probably close to BART), as I changed my mind about renting a car, eating establishments, places to see, etc. We both like to walk, but we must take into consideration that I will be almost 70 and she will be almost 69 when we take the trip. We are physically young for our age, but you do know that age will creep up on you.
