I figured that San Diego would have a modern public transportation system. I guess that I was wrong. The AHA really needs to start to factor transportation into the equation when deciding on where to hold NHC. In Maryland, it is possible to get from BWI Airport to downtown Baltimore and back via light rail, no cab fare involved. It appears that San Diego cab fares make Grand Rapids cab fares seem cheap in comparison. I was quoted $30.00 to get from San Diego Airport to 500 Hotel Circle, a distance of 7.2 miles. It's cheaper to take a cab in the District of Columbia (which is not necessary because of the Metro). Washington, D.C. is a lot more upscale than San Diego.
