Late Night Public Art

I hit the road with my friend Nikki for another late night roadtrip. We headed for South San Francisco to visit the Aeolian Harp, a 92 foot tall sculpture by Aristides Demetrios. An Aeolian Harp is named for Aeolus, the Greek god of the wind, and invented by the 17th-century polymath Athanasius Kircher. An aeolian harp is a passive instrument played by the movement of the wind.

After this, we headed to the burnt down train station in Burlingame. The frogs were singing and I accidentally punched Nikki in the mouth while having her smell wild anise that I picked.
We then headed to the Seward cement slides, but unfortunately they have devised a very clever way of keeping people from using the slides at night.

We then traveled to Dolores Park for a long relaxing time on the reclining swings. It got chilly and then headed home.
