Just a brief note.
My ode to San Fran won the Lonely Planet #twities competition this week! The weekly contest sponsored by the Lonely Planet travel book series (@lonelyplanet on Twitter) asked people to tweet about San Francisco, New York or both (!) this week.
I won the San Fran tweet, and thus got my pick of a lovely Lonely Planet travel guide. (You’ll have to guess for which country.)
Here’s my tweet:
Ginsburg’s Howl riding on Carl’s cat paw fog comes to yum cha in San Fran, tweeting about a new start up, rainbow flag flying
[Sadly, I spelled Ginsberg incorrectly. I was tweeting quickly. Yes, I know. Excuses, excuses.]
For a short NYTimes article on Ginsberg, Howl, San Francisco, City Lights (the publisher of “Howl” and fabulous indie bookstore), Lawrence Ferlinghetti & a new movie about them (starring James Franco!), click on Howl/San Fran connection.
And click here for the amazing City Lights Bookstore.
See you on Twitter! (@mayleechai)
