I'm a feminist, cyclist, hopeless romantic, dreamer, happy nihilist/existentialist, geographer, science-map-music-physics-computer-sci-fi geek, musician, nomad,artist (Painter), love the outdoors, gamer and sometimes sarcastic. Dark humor is fun, a broken heart is not. I'm quiet..yet opinionated. A loner who enjoys the company of good friends and good conversations. I am annoyed by people who think they are to "cool" for certain things.....like the ones who want to save the planet, but are to "cool" for the green movement.

Always up for an adventure. Nowhere is to far.

Map of The Bay Area using your hands

The metropolitan area surrounding San Francisco Bay, better known as the Bay Area, includes over 100 cities (San Francisco, Oakland and San José being among the most populous) and counts about 7 million people. It is the 4th-largest metropolitan area in the US and the 47th-largest in the world.

Many non-locals will be surprised to learn that San José is the largest city in the Bay Area (having surpassed San Francisco in the 1980s). Another lesser-known fact is that a map of the entire Bay Area can be created using nothing more than two functioning, interlocking hands (preferably your own).

This ‘Handy Map of San Francisco’ does not say why or whether it is absolutely necessary to paint your right thumbnail black to create the effect of San Francisco.
