    Haight Street San Francisco March 2002

    City bus encounters.
    Of course we took taxis when we were in a hurry or couldn't figure the map. But the city buses were the most fun. For one dollar (and they take bills, so you don't have to run all over creation looking for tokens like in NYC) you can ride it all, transfer as often as you like. Time limit is 3 hours, but nobody checks or asks for anything (like in London) so it's very friendly and cheap. We met the Sombrero Man, a nice bag lady (three whalloping big black plastic bags, all loaded on with care), lots of nice people to explain the sights, including a Chain Tattoo man, a high bike rider, and lots more.   (Continued . . . )

    ( . . . Continued.)   High percentage of Asian riders, not as much of a mix as in NYC. And three altercations. One was a beefy guy on a nice black lady for no reason I could see. She was quiet at first and ignored his remarks. Later she gave him back everything he put on her. The exchange ended abruptly when he got off at his stop. Another was a dirty street young-guy bragging to his buddies in back about a sexual thing at a public bath of some kind. A lapwork session with a girl they all seemed to know, very graphically portrayed in a jargon that sounded black but he was a white guy. Maybe rap-influenced. No money involved. The bath attendant spoke softly to him when they left--none the wiser. He mimicked the little white girl voice. Two sort of college girls up front got sick of this and told him to shut up. He said the bus was public and it was free speech. Don't get the wrong idea. The rides were fun and friendly. The altercations must be a SF thing, a sort of counterpoint to the generally pleasant atmosphere. Even when the bus was overcrowded the people were good-natured and polite.   [CLICK HERE to return to Haight Street San Francisco March 2002 Home Page]
