city of St. Francis (tour)

san francisco is "the most multicultural city in america," a place where "everyone is a minority, because there's no majority."

the intersection of haight (pronounced "hate") st. and ashbury st. (this was a centerpoint for hippie gatherings in the 1060s).

.

the likes of joan baez, jimi hendrix, jim morrison and many others lived in the area. ..isn't it interesting that "love children" chose to gather on a street pronounced "hate"? ..maybe the hippies knew a little bit about the dance of duality.
