On my walk to a coffee shop the other day I tried to capture what makes Berkeley...Berkeley.

 The local junior high

Often times, and besides the many "crazies" that inhabit Berkeley, I feel like I am walking around in a fairy tale.  Actually, I suppose there usually is a crazy or two in a fairy tale.  Anyway, Berkeley has a cottage like charm to it.  And I'm pretty sure it also has one of the highest Cafe to person ratios in the country.  But that just makes me love it even more.


  1. Glad you are loving it up here so far! But really, how could you not? This area is as close to Utopia as I've ever seen (well yeah, except for the crazies :) ).

  2. What a charming looking town even with the crazies to make life interesting!! That coffee looks amazing!
