HEADING WEST: JULY 1, 2006
It was a great relief to ride in cooler weather. For some reason on this Saturday morning, a number of people asked us for directions. It is quite handy that we have a detailed map, a pretty good sense of the city and are wearing official uniforms. There was a German family piled with their jumble of luggage, hanging out on a bench in Ogawa Plaza. Save for them and mounds of yet to be collected trash, the plaza was brutally desolate in comparison to its weekday bustle. While we were figuring out our westward route for the day, the mother (?) came over to ask us where to find the RV rental center so they could pick up their vacation vehicle. We helped them as best we could; their destination was near the airport. After we gave them directions via BART, they continued to sit on the bench with their luggage. Were they lost? Were they waiting?
