We were delighted to host our niece Emily for the weekend. She has narrowed her college choices and Cal is one of her top remaining possibilities. So she flew out from Baltimore on Saturday and we spent a couple of days showing her Berkeley and San Francisco.
Here we are in front of Sather Gate on the Cal campus:
It was a very nice visit, with pretty good weather, and I hope she got a good sense of the Bay area. It's quite a ways from her family, though, so she will have to think pretty hard about this school and her other (more East coast) choices. Given how well she did in getting into top schools, any choice she makes is going to be a good one.
On a side note, we took Emily to dinner at Green's in San Francisco, the world-class vegetarian restaurant. It was, of course, delicious. Just by luck, I managed to take this photo of the Golden Gate Bridge from our table:
