		away through heavy traffic and there are no
		useful trains as in civilized countries.)
	Please be aware of the larger distances between cities
	on the west cost of the USA if you are planning to
	visit other places while in California. For example,
	La Jolla to San Francisco is ten hours by car.

		within walking distance of TSRI.  We will be happy to 
		handle room reservations and payment.  
			~$180 shared 3 nights
