Choo choo in the hills

And another hideaway fun thing I had no idea existed - in the Berkeley hills is this cute little choo choo steam train you can ride on. Pretty decent ride too. Dav and I got the bonus version cuz a dog ran along the train most of the time...even through tunnels and all. Must have belonged to one of the workers since the dog sure seemed to know what he was doing. I just couldn't get over how beautiful everything was. To be so close to a fun city like SF, but get to ride around on the hills through fresh air and trees...you don't realize what you miss until you live in a concrete jungle with people people and people. I'm having a hard time adjusting to the immense difference b/w SF and Tokyo. It's too weird to be able to hop on a plane for 10 hours and voila! Now I'm back and as I type here in this internet cafe, I can hear the traffic, construction, and techno music that I suppose is to keep my energy up up up so I can go go go...I want a choo choo train in Nishi Koyama!
