I'm soon to be working in the Berkeley area of San fransisco (hopefully within the next 5 months if all goes well). Im English in the UK at the minute, and although my husband is American, he is from Seattle so is as in the dark as I am
What I'm wondering is whats it like there? Is it true that its an expensive place to live? We are hoping to actually live in Alameda. What can we expect to pay for a decent 1 or 2 bedroom apartment there and whats the travel time like?
Anything else you might think would be useful to me would greatly appreciated.
