San Diego is not a pedestrian-friendly place. We are apparently supposed to drive everywhere. Our sidewalks come and go (and when there is one, it is usually not well kept), there are hardly any trash bin around (ergo the third-world-like proliferation of trash everywhere), and only once in a while do you come upon public benches outside of the touristy waterfront. So, when I ran into one while roaming around Mission Valley area the other day, it was a welcomed respite.
It was a very friendly bench that even asked me to stop to visit. Naturally, I didn't need to be asked twice... Thanks for a good sit, benchy friend!
