Crabs

We have a farewell celebration and, of course, a celebration of James becoming a Gringo. I go up to a Chinese supermarket on Irvine on Ben’s bike and buy two huge, very angry, Dungeness Crabs. They are in my backpack on the ride home and they struggle hard to regain the briny depths. Strange feeling having a living pack.

Sorry!

Sorry!

I also go to Lucky’s to buy a rib of beef. You can eat so well here.

Free, if you buy a 2 lbs box of detergent

The menu is fresh crab with ginger, lotus root and bok choi, followed by rib of beef with mashed potatoes and carrots. We eat in the kitchen.

All this is washed down with lots of Californian Chardonnay and Cabernet.

Megan is a vegetarian but nobly accepted beef.

The next morning James kindly drives me to the airport on the KLR. Another joy of the apartment is that, although in the center of the city, it is only 20 minutes from SFO. You just honk down Oak until you hit 101 then freeway to the International Terminal. It is a great ride on a beautiful morning. Thanks James.

Here is a record of the trip to the airport.
