Choo Choo Charlie
Made a quick run yesterday up and back to San Mateo for a Junior Statesmen meeting.
I really enjoy taking the train from the San Francisco Airport to downtown San Mateo, where Junior Statesmen has its headquarters.
Actually it's four trains! First the Airtrain at SFO to the BART Station. Then BART north to the first station. Transfer across the track to a southbound BART. Transfer at the next stop to CalTrain (above) for an eight minute ride to San Mateo.
Seems like a hassle, but it's really not bad -- and a lot cheaper than renting a car.
It was raining yesterday in the Bay Area and the rain followed me home today. I know we're in a drought and we need the rain -- but I still don't like it.
