We shifted into a hotel within San Fran itself today ... all part of the plan. We grabbed lunch with a friend of Kim's who was living near the Castro area (nothing to do with Cuban leader).

Tomorrow is a very significant day in the gay event calendar and there were a few people wandering around the street stark naked (except for footwear)! Fidel would have a heart attack.

It was all very educational for me. I overheard someone saying that the Armed Offenders Squad would have been called in if this was in LA. But in San Fran, it is quite acceptable by the local authorities ... apparently nudity is not illegal under federal legislation so the matter is controlled locally.

We then got on the phone and changed Kim's flight ... and he departed home this evening, a day earlier.
