We drove directly to the China Town district of SF, which was quite ironic. I traveled half way around the world to the United States of America for my first destination... China Town. It was really great to get some fresh air, and see some glimpse of the city. I saw some street fairs along the way, took a photograph with a San Franciscan policeman, and relaxed in a park listening to live music.
For lunch we had chinese obviously, which I have to say was surprisingly good.
We returned to the car, and dealt with an out-of-order ticket machine to delay our exit. Driving out of the city we passed the Bay Bridge, which is in two sections and had once collapsed in the 1989 Earth quakes. The temperature changed dramatically from the city to the outer suburbs, such as Walnut Creek. Inland the temperature increase by at least 30% on the day. From 16*C, to 25*C in a matter of a 30 minute drive.
My plan tomorrow will be to get the Bart into the city, see Alcatraz, walk the Golden Gate Bridge, and ride the Cable Cars. Lets see if that actually happens!
