if you want to see what a modern day ghost town looks like, go to downtown redwood city on a sunday at lunch. it’s eerie. all of the restaurants and shops are closed. i met up with geoff yesterday and thought that we would be able to find a place to eat and everywhere we went was just shut down.
we eventually found a mexican restaurant that was open off main street and had lunch, caught up, and waxed philosophy. afterwards, we went in search of a starbucks (because surely starbucks wouldn’t be closed on a sunday!) and chatted a bit at the train station starbucks. we were just looking back at how times have changed in a year.
