last night we watched alfred hitchcock's classic film, vertigo, in preparation for our california trip next week. i hadn't seen it in a while and had forgotten how much of the film is driven by the soundtrack, scenery, colors, (over)acting, and film angles. the dialogue is almost secondary. the film still packs a psychological punch, and i found it hard to summarize it for a colleague at work today without giving away the twist ending.

as for the scenery, i enjoyed seeing how much san francisco has changed...and how much is still the same.

we're looking forward to spending a weekend in monterey/carmel, where we'll add another california mission to our list of places visited. also planning a trip to the monterey bay aquarium to say hello to the otters.
