A Day in Berkeley & Honu had a Flat Tire

Aloha Everyone,

After two hours, Orozco's Mobile Tire Repair was able to fix Honu's flat tire. The work was completed in the parking lot of our inn. J.J. gladly gave him $100 including a generous tip.

This morning we had a chance to walk around and did some shopping at Trader Joe's.

Here are some interesting facts about Berkeley:

1). Berkeley is located 10 miles north of San Francisco.

2). University of California Berkeley is the flagship of the University of California system and one of the top public universities in the USA.

3). U.C. Berkeley has a student to faculty rate of 17 to 1.

4). America's Free Speech Movement started here in 1964.

5). The median income for a household is $60,908.

6). The city has the highest rate of bicycle commuting in the country.

Our lunch was at Athineon, Greek restaurant on University Avenue.

One of the best Baklava we've had.

We will be getting ready to go to Richard's birthday party. J.J. looks terrific in his suit, but I know he rather be in his polo shirts and casual pants.

Aloha -- Cathi
