Top 4 favorite things about moving to SF:
1. Mexican Food
2. Availability & Affordability of Produce*
3. Aguas Frescas
I can't get enough of the delicious juices that you can get at virtually every Mexican joint in town, be they cantelope, watermelon, strawberry or whatever. So refreshing! I try to kid myself that they're not loaded with sugar, because the presence of actual fruit chunks makes me wanna believe that they're 100% natural and 100% good for you. For the reason that will soon become obvious to you, Agua de Fresca made me think of my #4 favorite thing about SF . . .
4. Cal Tjader (he called the Bay Area home for most of his life)
And with that I give you two songs from his fantastic early seventies album on Fantasy, called "Agua Dulce"
Cal Tjader - Agua Dulce (Cool-Aid)
Cal Tjader - Gimme Shelter
* edible, medicinal, etc
