Mary left the frigid northeast almost 10 years ago and never looked back. After extended detours in Central America and Denver, it was love at first sight as the San Francisco skyline first came into view. Mary has lived and worked in San Francisco and the East Bay for 7 years. She jumped the fence to skip the line at the deYoung Museum opening, has sunbathed at every city beach, danced at almost every nightclub, but she still can’t say “hella” (though stays true to her roots with “wicked”). Mary loves random hot beach days in the winter, the abundance of insanely good food, the live music scene, the ass-kicking hills, the diverse neighborhoods, and not having a car payment. She has contributed highlights and photos to Lonely Planet’s San Francisco city guides, and now works in the NileGuide headquarters. A recent stint living in Uganda reaffirmed that there really is no place like home.
