Prior to attending my conference in San Diego, California, I stopped in San Francisco first.
I have many photos from San Francisco and its various attractions. My first set will focus on Downtown, including China and Little Italy.
In the region where I stayed near Union Square, the buildings reach tall and there’s lots of stylish stores everywhere.
I took a free walking tour organized through the hostel, which led us to Chinatown. Until recently, this Chinatown was North America’s largest, though Vancouver now claims this title.
These are patrons of the tour company which promises you an experience of San Francisco by Segway. Sounds good, right? Not really. They don’t tell you beforehand in the brochure that you need to wear those ugly uniforms. If you want to look like a very stupid tourist, this is the way to go.
On my last full day in the city, I didn’t have any special plans so I hopped on the BART train and just got off at a random stop that seemed like a significant place. I end up at San Francisco City Hall where a Free Tibet demonstration is taking place.
These binoculars by the Coit Tower give you a nice view of the overgrown trees.
San Francisco sure has a lot of hills.
