Where I stayed
we headed out for an explore of san diego after checking in
after that we walked on to a rather twee shopping area called seaport. it's all modern replicas of older buildings and full of chinese made gifts. we're having a real problem finding authentic us made gifts. turns out the usa is more dependant on the chinese than we are aware. they own a lot of the us govenment debt and appear to supply most of their consumer products. interesting.
rather than eat out, we found a proper food supermarket and took a feast of sushi back to our room.
after a rest we ended the evening in the swimming pool and the spa pool.
today we're going to explore balboa park. there are a couple of interesting museums dedicated to space exploration and aviation. the aircraft carrier uss midway is here in the harbour so we might take a look onboard and, if i can push my luck, the maritime museum.
