On the Road Again…

Another NorCal weekend visiting with family and friends.  This time we stayed one block from the famous Sproul Plaza of UC Berkeley, at the Hotel Durant.








We giggled from the moment we entered the lobby, loving the university themed decor.  Nothing stuffy here!  Check out the “bookshelf chairs”….perfect for the most studious.  Sit.  Read.  Repeat.  I could sit here with my favorite book (currently, UnBroken, by Laura Hillenbrand…awesome!!)  for hours, especially since the bar is 20 feet away.  The friendly bartender was happy to deliver my white wine and nuts!  Absolute heaven….

Have a seat and stay for a while

The lobby chandelier….one of a kind, with bluebooks, tests and class papers hanging from it’s arms.  Those university students are so clever….such good recyclers!

Help me reach that Chemistry test!

We even got a history lesson, going back to the flag-burning/bra-burning days of the 60′s and 70′s.

And…the huge rivalry between UC Berkeley and Stanford University across the bay?  The men’s restroom in the lobby told us what Berkeley-ites think of those “Sequoia trees!??” ( is that really what they call themselves??)  GO Bears…..

Men's urinal... aim for the "S" please!

The Berkeley culture lesson continued in our room.

Is that lamp a bong, or is that bong a lamp?

And of course, activism continues today… Please separate your trash!
