My wonderful best friend visited from Australia over my very first Thanksgiving. It was such a welcome break from reality after a crazy year. He's a person who is happy to fly across the world just to sit in silence with me and play Pokemon on the couch. Sometimes Google Hangouts just doesn't cut it.
During his visit, we hunted for the infamous Golden Gate Buffalo (and much to our dismay, found them locked behind a tiny gate), ate an obscene amount of food, baked all the pies, and spent a whole lot of money on Uber rides. We made a trip to the California Academy of Sciences to visit the beautifully restored taxidermy, their displays so immaculate that my snaps almost look like posters.
