I'm at the AGU (American Geophysicists Union) conference and I'm pleased to announce that I've spotted some very fashionable femmes here in San Francisco. I just adore this woman's coat and boots. Oh, and look at that hat! The entire effect is so charming. Very French, in fact.
Speaking of French, last night I had the most delicious dinner of grilled trout, fingerling potatoes and green beans at Cafe Claude--a fabulous French Bistro at Bush Street between Kearny and Grant.
Dr. Thompson had coq au vin and our dear friend (and famous) scientist-guest had lasagna--not very French, but she assured me it was delicious. We also enjoyed a chevre salad, a bottle of delicious zinfandel and lots of lively conversation on climate change. We ended the evening on 39th floor of the Marriot with more wine and a spectacular view of the San Francisco Bay!
