Huge and sublime open space. Loved it.
L'Osteria del Forno
Small Italian in Little Italy SF.

My family liked it. I say OK. $55 for 4 with half fuzzy vino, Pizza, Pasta and some oven shroom.
Nice and small place.
Pretty Vietnamese atomosphered restaurant. Do not have Pho but I guess in Vietnam, they are different food like you can not order Udon at Ramen place in Japan. Dry noodles and rice combos good and cheap. Since customer have to use this sweet source themselves, the whole interiors are sticky @o@

Guess what my colleagues saw from our office today.

In Fremont. Kind a far but decent. So far better than Halu thus the best in this area.
Hilton Heathrow. Not bad. Good use of the mid-open space. 99quid per night.

Palo Alto near the bay and Audi. Big space and so so quality. May Flower and Dynasty is superior.

Ryowa Ramen in Mt. View. $7.50 for Ramen (tonetsu?), 3 Gyoza and Fried Rice. Not bad.

Like the one below, this was by the canal but all the seat were reserved. We shall try next time.

Near the canal on P.ta Genova there is a Pizzeria called Premiata. They had a decent pizza and pasta. But too loud in there. The canal is nice area for arty people.
Minimalist hotel on north of Hyde Park. Perhaps too simple that interfere with your instinct to turn off the light or turn on the shower. $350 per night. Even in a London, a bit pricy.

2 kind taste. Plain Shio and Halu which is like a Ton-kotsu but a bit artificial thickness to it. Shio might be just better but I like the thick noodle in Halu Ramen. Interior smell like a toilet but nice surfboard decoratioin. Would go there again.

Painted the horn pad frame where some of the black were flaking off. I could have separated the soft pad section but I just masked it off and so far it looked OK. Used Rust-O-rama semi gloss black. Also sprayed the window shield wiper black after sanding with 150 and 500 grid paper. The dent where wiper motor sticks out of the hood still had water from a few days ago. Could be rust-caution spot.

Good Bye Lenin. Sounded good and my expectation of east Germany filming relates to [Himmel über Berlin, Der (1987)] too much but the movie did not do me much. Did have some of the sour socialistic quality about it but it was too late to film and direct that kind a feeling to it. Good aging by the mother. 3 out of 5.
