San Francisco one month later

Reading a book. "To play a fool" from Laurie R. King. Everything is happening in San Francisco and the streets and the people, the mood feel familiar. The book told me that "it's hard to build away the bay and the hills here" "-Yes, San Francisco is domed to never be a modern city". In this way a modern city seems to be a city with high buildings and nothing more than walls and street down down there.
I would like to say that we are going back to (with all this modern thinking about green cities and green neighborhoods) the "old" city again cause we have to. The city was growing to fast. Without the human spirit and without a thought that humans should live there. But the city is for the humans. So we have to build.

San Francisco is great in that way, with soo many big parks in the city. But a bit too many cars too. And a lot of other problems.
