Caught the train into San Fran today and wandered around - painted ladies, farmer's markets, strolling along the wharf area. The level of homelessness is quite distressing... so many mentally ill and homeless people who have set up camp on the main streets. Literally every block had at least 5 homeless people on it. Apparently it's illegal in San Fran to move a homeless person on - they can stay where they like for as long as they like. Which sounds to me like the city is throwing its hands in the air and avoiding the problem of finding these people a safe place to live. Such a shame.
