Strait is the Gate by Andre GideA delicate boy growing up in Paris, Jerome Palissier spends many summers at his uncles house in the Normandy countryside, where the whole world seems steeped in azure. There he falls deeply in love with his cousin Alissa and she with him. But gradually Alissa becomes convinced that Jeromes love for her is endangering his soul. In the interests of his salvation, she decides to suppress everything that is beautiful in herself - in both mind and body.

I was late to book a room last week, and all of San Francisco was mobbed because of the OpenWorld conference. Cornell Hotel de France had one of the last rooms available in my budget, and in walking distance of the financial district, so I thought I give it a chance. I'm nervous about boutique hotels in SF because often they photograph very well on sites like TripAdvisor or Hotels. This week, I had no choice, so I booked it. Every brick and thread of the property is charming.
