Castro St.

Last night for Halloween, a few of my friends and I went to Castro St. in San Francisco. This was our first time, and we heard it was a lot of fun, so we decided to see what all the fuss was about. We got a few pictures (though I don’t have them yet, but look, here’s a pic of me as a Lego character!).

The costumes were awesome. Lots of unique ideas, lots of repeats, lots of people hardly wearing anything at all. Guys making out with guys, guys making out with girls, girls making out with girls. About what you’d expect for Castro St.

What we didn’t expect, though, were the shots fired within a block of us. We didn’t hear it at the time, and just found out this morning. We started thinking about it and we realized just how close we were. I guess it’s a good thing we didn’t even know this had happened, because we would have panicked. Not sure we’re coming back next year, but at least we had fun and nobody got hurt.
