    It reminded me of the days when I worked on New Montgomery and Mission street, and I would have one hour for lunch. I wanted to do many things in that hour, so I would buy a quick anything and eat on the streets as I was walking. It is an art you learn to do.

    Oh yeah, and pretty much everyone walks fast in this city, specially, if you are downtown. Don't be a tourist with your big luggage and stop in the middle of the street lost and trying to read your map.

    You are blocking the flow of human traffic. I saw that today.

    I get to BART, I am frantically, sticking my BART ticket in the slot, I hear the trains coming, you want to keep moving at all times.

    Another train is coming, you can feel this strong blowing wind just coming all of a sudden. It feels good, yes, I am drying off.

    It is going to Daily City, the opposite way. I hear them announce that another train is coming soon, it is going to the Airport, also, opposite direction.

    I come up the escalator to the street level, the first thing I see in front of me is the Pier1 building. I notice all the people around me, the street vendors, it is alive.

    If you want to get in, you have to be aggressive. You have to push your way in and now, you are a sardine.

    I reach to the back of my pant's pocket and close the button, where my wallet is.
