    Bahaha I love that squirrel photo!! I’m terrified of squirrels actually because I had a nightmare about one running up my back and taking a chunk out of my upper back. This was when I was in elem. school, mind you!

    Berkley has always looked like so much fun to me. Those were my people (in a previous life before I had children).

    Oh, I LOVE when you go to Berkeley! I’m a student here and like seeing things from your perspective. So you went to Angeline’s French Soul Food (I hope you had their lemonade), Telegraph Avenue, Mars Vintage Clothing, and… hmm. That last place stumps me. It looks delicious though! Come again, there’s still much to explore ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can see that Berkley hasn’t changed much over the years – still a fun, hippy town with lots of character (and a few characters!).

    I love hippies! I’m really one at heart, despite my girlie exterior. Your photos are so beautiful and colorful. The closest thing NC has to Berkley is Carrboro, which is pretty hippie-fied in its own right.

    Dara Thai Lao! you should’ve also have gone to one right next door to that one ~ Cha Am! ~ AND you should’ve ordered the #5 po piah rolls along with the #21 your choice of chicken, pork or beef. It was my favorite go-to Thai restaurant when I lived in Berkeley! You’ve got to stop posting pics of Berkeley ~ you’re making me even more homesick than I already am! you see i grew up there and just recently moved to the midwest… Glad you have fun though. telegraph ~ sooo many memories ๐Ÿ™

    My alma mater! Your photos took me back to my college days. I think I’m overdue for a visit. I had a chance to visit briefly last summer (2009), but I was only there for a few hours and spent most of my weekend trip in Oakland and San Francisco. Time to get back to my roots!
