It doesnt' sound fun, exactly. It isn't meant to be entertaining. But still, the Refugee Camp in the Heart of San Francisco seems kind of ... cool? Run by the incredibly dedicated and high-quality people at Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres, the installation demonstrates very clearly what would happen to you if you had to run for it. Herding, mass vaccinations, a complete and utter lack of In 'N Out Burgers no kidding, it's not a trip to Fisherman's Wharf. So why would you want to deal with it? Well, um, 42 million of your comperes in various places (not Fisherman's Wharf) kick it like this every day. Because Doctors Without Borders travels around to help those 42 mil, the camp here uses the very same materials the group uses with real refugees.
