Tourist In San Francisco

Last month I was a tourist in San Francisco for four days. The reason I went there was to go to Burning Man at Baker Beach where Burning Man first happened in 1986, I already wrote a blog entry about that.
On the drive there I stopped at a cafe in Redding CA called Kaleidoscope and the owner and I had Burning Man in common, he had been like 17 times or something. Nice meeting fellow Burners passionate about Burning Man.



So this is how I spent my time in San Francisco. I walked around in China Town.



Felt scared driving up and down the many steep streets, by day four I felt braver but the elevation is crazy. I don't know how people park their cars on those streets? Or drive in the rain when the roads get slick?



This became my fave place for coffee and pastries, probably some of the best I've ever had.



I checked out Pacific Heights and looked at the majestic homes. This is one of the most expensive areas to live in the country (Nancy Pelosi calls it home, perhaps she is looking for a fun roommate?). Here is the view from a place I stopped at by Pacific Heights.



The famous Golden Gate bridge.





City Hall.



Saints Peter and Paul church.





On Memorial Day I went up to the Coit Tower to check out the views. That is Alcatraz Island out there in the San Francisco Bay.



Me.



An airplane made a ❤ in the sky!



Four days go by fast. I would like to go back and stay for a while, at least two weeks, maybe longer. San Francisco is a big city with a lot of interesting history, amazing architecture and so much to see. I like it a lot.
What I did notice right away was that the city was calm compared to Portland. I did not see any people out protesting, no destruction, broken windows and no graffiti. Interesting.....
