San Francisco, July 11, 2008

PHOTO CAPTIONS: 1-2. World famous Golden Gate Bridge, 3-5. Legion of Honor Art Museum, 4. Lombard Street (click here to check out this UTube video of a guy doing a wheelie on a motorcycle both up and down Lombard), the crookedest street in the world, 5. China Town.

Andre had been in California more than a month without seeing San Francisco, so we finally ran up for a day. We took the car and did the whirlwind tour: Golden Gate Bridge, Legion of Honor Art Museum, Lombard Street (the crookedest street in the world), China Town for a great dinner, and strolling along Fisherman's Wharf. We watched a so-so show at Pier 39 (I like this UTube video, but you might need to fast forward during the guy's commentary), but this woman who's older than I am, wasn't very funny nor talented. The show improved when she brought kids on stage because they're always entertaining. Her grand finale was a tightrope walk between two strong male volunteers, while juggling flames. We also shot baskets, played air hockey and skittle ball in the arcade.

Overall, a very satisfying adventure and the weather wasn't too bad (note, the moisture on the lens on the first few photos). We also got to park the car and do a lot of walking, which is what I enjoy best.
