Another fun, busy year in Oakland. I did lots of familiar things like walking urban paths walks, checking out the Oakland food scene, and exploring Oakland's burgeoning art community. But I also met lots of great new people in Oakland, and was introduced to things like curling, rowing and glass blowing. Mostly I saw people out enjoying Oakland and working to make it better.
Oakland is a pretty darn awesome place to live. Here's hoping 2013 is happy, peaceful, and prosperous for Oaklanders, and it becomes even more awesome.
