Exploring SF

First thing. Need MOAR DATA. Off to AT&T to buy a few more GB.

Tony and I went for a wander to find breakfast and found a cafe called Mo’z, where i had a mexican omelette. 5/5 would eat again.

We booked ourselves in for the most touristy of things… an open roof bus ride to explore all that San Fran has to offer.

First, downtown SF, then up into the hills. Red light district, Lombard, Fisherman’s Wharf, Alcatraz Landing, Pier 39, The Cannery, the original Mel’s, then onto the Golden Gate Bridge. Amazing seeing it first hand. It was extremely foggy over the bridge, and we froze our nuts off. But great to experience it first hand.

On the other side of the bridge, we stopped for a few hours in Sausalito which is a beautiful picturesque little community, perched on the hillside between the San Francisco Bay and the Marin Headlands. Houses here start in the millions. And you can see why. Apparently it used to be a little hippy village in the 60s. We had a wander around the shops, I grabbed a pizza. Then back in the bus to head back to downtown, via Presidio (a former military base). Probably the most American looking place I saw on my whole journey. Then, back via the financial district.

When we got back, Tony took me to the famous Mel’s Diner for an early dinner, where i had a Rueben and apple pie. Was fantastic to experience a real USA style diner. So much food. So cheap. So full.

It was my last evening in San Francisco, so i headed out for one last evening walk around downtown to take it all in. I bought another pair of Vans and some undies, then off to Target to buy batteries. Target here also sells fresh fruit and veg which was rather odd. Took lots of photos to try and capture the downtown night atmosphere. It’s wonderful.

And so ends my final night here.
