Starbucks Around the World: Burlingame, CA

In truth, this was not a very good Starbucks.  It took a really, really long time to get my beverage and wasn’t clean.  However, I have to appreciate the truly charming atmosphere of Burlingame Avenue and gaggles of hip California college students studying inside. Plus, I desperately needed to pee.  This photo is a bittersweet moment after having lunch with my Aunt Barbara, who I hadn’t seen in about 15 years, and before traveling to the airport for the return flight to Chicago.  Way to deliver on the ‘Bucks, California.
