    I'm leaving for the airport after spending an amazing Thanksgiving with a friends family. Who has without a doubt the coolest mom in the world.

    Such an amazingly cool city.

    Felt so good to be back in the city among a crowd, to see all the xmas decorations and the stores. To be able to go out and flirt with all the hotties. The warm fuzzy feeling seeing gay guys everywhere and see them uninhibited to throw their arms are round each other on street corners.

    I know many guys on here live here so I just wanted to say I'm so jealousicon_cry.gif

    Glad you had a great Thanksgiving. Probably my favourite US city. Spent a week there in 1996 and 1997. Try going in the summer some time, it is really beautiful (and not too hot).

    Is your own San Diego such a provincial city, regarding gays?

    Well as my friend said as we were leaving.

    It's a Suburb with a beach icon_lol.gif

    And I'm a city boy at heart

    "not too hot" is the understatement of the year. it's freezing in SF in the summer.

    My BF and I were there for the week of Thanksgiving too. It is always a great place to be. It was hard to leave but I know we will return again.

    I second the thank you to everyone there.

    No matter how many cities and countries you've lived in or traveled to, there is something very special about San Francisco and the Peninsula - Marin - Napa. Cold in the summer? Oh God yes! But there are thousands of guys to meet to help keep you warm at night!

    I love it, I hate hot weather. 70 Fahrenheit is just about perfect for me. icon_cool.gif

    Walking across the Golden Gate Bridge with the wind blowing in your face looking down below at the ships passing underneath (and all the windsurfers) it is an amazing sight. I want to go back.

    It's like imagine if there was an entire world where everyone is either gay or completely accepting of others. Me and my friends did crazy things just walking round that city you just get the impression that there are much less social expectations to conform to.

    And everything is pretty, even the airport, I've been before but it was the first time for some of my friends and the excitement rubbed off. Not to mention it's Christmas time and 3 months since I've been in a city.


    I haven't seen Milk yet, a large group of us from the university are going later in the week.

    It is one of the easiest places to feel at home in. I'm glad you had a good time. I love going over there and spending time roaming, I feel privileged to be able to live nearby.

    I grew up in San Jose just south of SF. I have fond childhood memories of weekend trips to SF and have visited some since moving away. I was there last memorial day. The city has a mystique all its own. I also like the areas north of SF .. green and beautiful.

    I always have the feeling that I need to return and visit and thought it was maybe because I spent some of my childhood in the area, but now I get the impression that other people feel the same for different reasons.

    I hope to visit again in the spring. The flights are easy and relatively cheap.
