I’m in San Diego since the past week on work, and will be here for the next 3 months. It’s hard not to mention the weather when one is in SoCal. SD has the right level of warm and consistently so – a step up over the interspersed shine, rain, and chill in the SF/Bay area, though some here complain of May gray/June gloom. Turns out, the weather is not the only place where San Diego trumps SF – I was witness to the SF Giants losing to the San Diego Padres (yes, their mascot is a friar) in a baseball game played on Wednesday here at Petco Park.


Before leaving Berkeley, I managed to complete and return the library copy of India after Gandhi by Ramachandra Guha. I may post a detailed review someday, but for now, all I’ll say is that this is one of the most informative and well written books I’ve read on the political history of the nation from independence to 2006.


It’s the season of summer movies, and several visual treats await – top on my list are Star Trek, Angels and Demons, and Terminator Salvation.
