I had a real blast In San Francisco with my long strolls, never-ending chats with Laura Lynn, who gave me the red-carpet treatment in every way, boat rides that were much more than fun, tough hikes, visits to bookstores... and enjoyable conversations with Tom and his family (thanks for the watch) and Sergio, a wonderful listener. Thanks everyone for making my stay so nice and unforgetable. I also made a seagull friend, who was very chatty and informative. The bird asked me to take his picture. Hope you like it.
This is a snapshot taken in San Francisco during a tough hike. I had loads of fun climbing up, and heaps of vertigo coming down. But I made it. More dead than alive! And I had very good company; my mates were professional hikers and mountain climbers. The best.

A few days ago I recommended Mathew Stewart's The Courtier and the Heretic, Leibnitz, Spinoza and the Fate of God in the Modern World, which I have found informative and very good reading. It has an excellent Bibliography of primary and secondary sources in English, French, German, Italian... but not a single entry in Spanish! Alas! No further comment, and you can draw your own conclusions, in the light of the title of this reflection.
