San Francisco..in pictures

Some pics from arguably one of the best cities I've been to, beautiful place. Very much a Cape Town CBD feel just on a much larger scale.

Jy sal verbaas wees..ek was bietie meer as 'n maand daar, van die East Coast na die West, en die mens orals isn vriendeliker as 99% van Suid-Afrikaners en euopeans. Hulle kan nie genoeg vir jou doen nie, en sal altyd ekstra vÍr gaan om jou te help en seker te maak als is reg vir jou. :)

Very nice.

Daardie 2de foto - is dit nie die een of ander bekende tronk wat daar gebou is nie?

Good man! Yep, that is largely the reason for my trip to SFO.

Do not know where you stayed , but a good option is Sausalito (small town opposite the Bay)
It is basically in line with Alcatraz & Pier 39.
Lovely small harbor town and you catch the ferry across to San Fran.

Did you rent a bike?
Great option to explore the Pier area & over the Bridge  :thumleft:
