My old housemate and her family moved over the weekend from Seattle to Oakland's Dimond District. I'm looking forward to exploring more of the East Bay, which I honestly have never given the proper time and I have the usual SF prejudices regarding anything over the bridges. As I drove to her place through the Fruitvale District, I saw countless places I wanted to revisit, places to eat, fresh architecture, new sights. She has settled in the Dimond District, an old German enclave, and this is a picture of her home, a former hotel. It's HUGE.
