last night in the states
We finally made it to San Francisco. My host parents drove us over there from Madera. We got out to Peer 39 having a nice lunch with a great view torwards Alcatraz.
We then went over the Golden Gate Bridge parked on one side and walked to the middle of it watching a large cargo ship going through.
We then got to Lombart Str., the one with the switch backs ... great little streat. Next we went on the Coit tower getting a nice view of the city. My host parents left us there and headed back home and we took off for some cable car riding. We went back to the Fisherman's Warf, did a little shopping and got some Clam Showder in a sour dough bowl... yummy! The sun was setting and the batttary of my camera was almost empty. Since Arne's camera was broken we decided to head back for the Hostel, which by the way has a great location, situated at Fort Mason, pretty much right by the water. Our room even has a bay view.
Now we are sitting here in a very cosy lounge area of the hostel, recharging the bettareies and ourselfes.
