Adapting to our region, San Francisco

New, great area. Much to see, much to do.
Work available. Cool living, cooler weather too.
Much to learn. Blend. Aha!
San Francisco Chronicle/SF Gate/Jessica Mullins, 10/19/15. "Things I learned after I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area." (Clearly Jessica Mullins lives in San Francisco, but some of the 38/39 slides photographs and captions recall learning experiences for new people moving into our Northern California region. Fun recall.)

"Not everyone is lucky enough to be born and raised in San Francisco, and for those of us who had the opportunity to move to the Bay Area, there may have been a steep learning curve.

There are the obvious lessons many of us expect to face, such as figuring out how to pay an exorbitant amount of money for rent each month or navigating the complications that can come with riding Muni and BART.

Some things you learn quickly, such as needing to hold your breath and watching where you step while walking down certain San Francisco streets. Other things you'll learn the embarrassing way. You've probably had someone tell you that you said something the wrong way -- that's another part of everyone's adjustment.

And then there's the fun tidbits you learn as you settle into San Francisco ways and explore the Bay Area.  The ... slideshow has some of the more memorable things we learned while adapting to life the Bay Area."  Read more, view slide show.
