San Francisco, California

My time in San Francisco can be pretty much summed up in one word: FOOD. There is a reason why this city is the food capital of America. They not only do one type of food well, they provide all kinds of tasty flavours extremely well. Thanks to our hosts, Timmy and Ursula, we got to try some of the best restaurants San Francisco has to offer: chinese, french soul, burmese and hole-in-the-wall mexican. I resisted the urge to take too many food shots (your welcome) and instead took too many tourist pictures (sorry).

Besides experiencing the food, we took in the Golden Gate Bridge, Lawrence of Arabia at the Castro Theater, the SF MoMA and explored neighbourhoods like Chinatown, Japantown, Haight Ashbury, Mission District and Castro.

Photos shot witch a combo of the Fujifilm X10 and the iPhone – it should be pretty easy to tell which is which.

Here’s a piece of what I saw from San Fran!

Lots of fishermen on this pier. I especially liked this man who seemed utterly content to be exactly where he was.

So. Many. Hills. made walking exhausting, but meant that you came across views like this one often.
