My favoritest place in Kyoto? Heck, not my room. It seems like a full-time job to keep my room from being a jail chamber. 24/7. Non-stop. Make the room entertaining, Ivan!
So what is my favorite spot in Kyoto? I don't know! I've been here six months, and I can't answer a question like that. Well, that's one to add to the list: Find a favorite place in Kyoto. Oh, please don't let that be a difficult task.
How about in Berkeley? That's a toughie too. I like the SPC. I like the Pink House. And I really like Hummingbird Cafe smoothies. But maybe my favorite spot has got to be Espresso Experience. Go there. Say 'hi' to Helen. Let her know that Ivan is in Kyoto, Japan.
Oakland? Oh, decisions. Decisions! Welp, there's no place like home, eh? Gotta vouch for my very own house. It's a happenin' place.
What's your favorite place at your place?
SPC rocks! My favorite place at Berkeley is SPC, and theater area (rep and Aurora) Also like 4th street as much as I hate to admit to being a capitalist swine. I like Emeryville a lot too, like where you worked. I like that theater area a lot. I go there regularly, wish you were still there!
In Alameda it's definitely the beach area.
My favorite place in all the world...? Ashland Oregon by far. The park and one of the theaters, the Bowmer theater is literally my favorite place on the planet.
Where is 4th street? Is that the place near the Marina that seems like some weird Twilight Zone of suburban America in Berkeley?
I like Bay Street down at Emeryville too! Just, my friends and I always had trouble after shows at the AMC because stuff would all close up by the time our movies were done. So, I have fond memories of standing around after movies and bantering nonsense and wondering if there were any decent place to sit and have a cup of something to accompany the chat.
I have yet to get to Ashland! OK, let's say that I'm going next year. I've gotta see this place, and I've gotta get some quality Shakespeareanness in my bones!

Yes 4th is that scary piece of suburbia. But don't judge it just yet, the thing I like about it is on weekends people are all outside sitting at cafes and it's a very European feel to it. I go and hang at Peet's over there. On the surface it's scary , but up close it's nice. It has a good feel to it.
Yeah you gotta hit Ashland. It's only like a 5.5 hour drive from the bay area. And the last part of the drive, by Shasta is gorgeous. Shasta is beautiful. I mean no Himalian can't beat it for majesty.
