(Not So) Big City

San DiegoSan Diego likes to think of itself as a big city, but seeing it from the International Space Station kind of puts things into perspective. Compared to Los Angeles, or even Phoenix, maybe we're not all that big. The city is, however, just about the right size in my book.

If you look closely, you'll notice a darkish area in the northern suburbs of San Diego. That's Camp Pendleton, a Marine base.

Update: Okay, I just heard from a friend who is a former Marine. Camp Pendleton is not, it seems, merely "a Marine base." Camp Pendleton is actually "the Marine base." I stand corrected.
