San Francisco 2014

At the end of the La trip Kris mentioned that they would be in SF for the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in October. They would be staying at Geoffs place in Bernal Heights. As Isa and i had never been to SF, we figure why not take a long weekend trip to SF to hang out with the guys and check out the festival.
2014 10
so on October 3rd we jumped on a plane to SF
2014 10
checked in to the AirBnb, pick up some lunch which we had here at the water
2014 10
then started walking towards the Golden Gate Bridge
2014 10
i asked her if she would lend me a ride which she refused
2014 10
it was hot
2014 10
and unlike her…we were getting toasted
2014 10
at which point we decided to get off the main streets and check out the neighborhood
2014 10
which not only provide some much needed shade
2014 10
but also made us appreciate the beautiful houses in SF
2014 10
ones like this everywhere
2014 10
we found The Palace of fine arts theater
2014 10
where i stood under a tree
2014 10
we did eventually make it to the bridge, but not quite
2014 10
we were knackered
2014 10
took some photos and headed back
2014 10
we took a bus to Powell st
2014 10
SF is very walking friendly unlike LA
2014 10
which is a really good thing…
2014 10
until you hit streets like these…which unfortunately are all over SF
2014 10
getting back to the AirBnb at the top of Bernal Heights
2014 10
the next day we headed to the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival
2014 10
stayed all day…and then headed back
2014 10
waiting for transit
2014 10
got off and walked by Misión San Francisco de Asís
2014 10
had some really good food
2014 10
dumplings and such
2014 10
back on the bart
2014 10
next day saw us walk around SF with the gang
2014 10
saw some art
2014 10
took some pictures
2014 10
lots of bridges
2014 10
lots of buildings
2014 10
and good company
2014 10
nat was getting hungry
2014 10
while i took more photos of the bridge…too many bridge photos
2014 10
this is inside of some mall
2014 10
walking towards the Transamerica Pyramid
2014 10
i saw this couple
2014 10
matching matching
2014 10
from the bottom of Transamerica Pyramid
2014 10
got some pizza and had lunch at the Washington Square Park
2014 10
next stop…China town
2014 10
love this street
2014 10
general craziness and lots of character
2014 10
touch of ecstacy
2014 10
making our way back to the bart
2014 10
they got this funky tiles in the bart
2014 10
they also have the most ludicrous ticket machine, The last day i forgot my camera at the AirBnb so no photos.
SF is a more practical city, very much like Vancouver. Unlike LA, you can walk around or take the transit. Its has some great architecture and beautiful spaces. But…who on earth can afford to live in SF?
