…Hope I didn’t sound too lonesome. You really wouldn’t believe this place – it really swings and I can get most anywhere on a bus, trolley, or cable car…The school looks interesting - went over there today.to find out about housing and it looks like everyone is in the same boat. I wouldn’t be surprised if I wound up with a group of hippies after all – also went down to the Height–A district it is a real scream. I’ve never seen so many bums & creeps – really is funny. Le me know (when I get an address) what type of junk you want from Chinatown. – curtains cost about 5.00 & up. Your am. Airlines book came in handy after all – I’m at the YMCA Hotel today – it’s ok but sure am tired of all these traffics sounds…..
