Yesterday was a wonderful day spent in the city with maiki! We went to see the Maira Kalman exhibit at the Contemporary Jewish Museum and it was wonderful. I bought three books in the gift shop: Fireboat, What Pete Ate and the Principles of Uncertainty. I had been anxious to visit the museum for some time and was happy to have finally made it there after a few failed attempts. We also checked out the work of the scribe of the “As It Is Written: Project 304,805,” in which a young woman is writing out the sacred Torah scroll at the museum. There are 304, 805 letters to meticulously write—its pretty amazing!
For lunch we went to the Samovar Tea lounge in Yerba Buena Gardens, a favorite place of ours. I tried new things and they were both delicious: vegan thai iced tea and the rice jook with tofu. We decided to walk around the city a bit, which means we will inevitably end up in Japantown. We went to New People and I bought a perfect little pearl ring that I had been eying made by mei-5. Its gorgeous!
