Visiting San Francisco for the Filipino American International Book Festival

Leslie Ryan and Cecilia Brainard

I drove from LA to San Francisco today and made it to the reception at the Philippine Consulate. Here are some pictures with the organizers and writers.

From the car, I dared take a few pictures -- that's probably worse than texting while driving and promise not to do it again, but the 6 hour drive got boring.

More pictures tomorrow, stay tuned.
