Vignettes of San Francisco

As Pilgrims go to Rome

In the same way that the poets have loved Rome and made their pilgrimages there — as good Moslems travel toward Mecca, so there are some of us who have come to San Francisco.  Then when we arrive and find it all that we have dreamed, our love for it becomes its highest tribute.  And I don’t know why it is sacrilege to mention Rome and San Francisco in the same breath.  As for me I greatly prefer San Francisco, although I have never been to Rome.
