While I was in the Bay Area, I did some touristy things, like riding the cable cars.



For whom the mission bell tolls

The other day, I went to Mission San Juan Capistrano. If you don’t know the mission story, it goes something like this: when Spain first explored California, they were unimpressed. There were no apparent resources to exploit, the climate seemed wholly unsuited to agriculture, and the natives were barely scratching out an existence. Spain used the coast as a stopping point on their trans-Pacific trade route, but completely ignored the interior for a couple centuries.
