hunging out of the cable car
Oh no! This cant be treu! Why does the awesome SF starts a new day with this rain? We need umbrellas urgently. Without any we cant make it here with this rain. Having umbrellas we decided to catch the cable car and went to Lombard street "America's crookedest street". Then we went to the wharf and had there this famous clam chowder. I'm not a big fan of it thou, but if you come to SF you are supposed to try this. Pier 39 with the seals - was the next stop. But there were just few seals lying and resting at the pier. Then we were trying to catch the bus to Golden Gate bridge, but it was a hassle, since the 76# was not on service as it was supposed to be. So if you ever try to get there bus MUNI-bus, catch the trolleybus 30# westbound and change at Chestnut st.

for bus 28#. As we arrived - we had the walk across the bridge and back. One way walk takes 30 minutes, so you have to plan pretty much time on it but its worth, cos from the Sausalito's end of the bridge you will get nice view over San Francisco. Then we walked back and got of the same bus [30#] southbound, changed for MUNI tram N# and stopped by 9th street, where we had chinese food. Rj had some problems after this meal, but it was pretty good. We went back to downtown and climbed the Telegraph hill with the Coit tower. It has some nice view over the town. Then we went down and took the cable car California-line to the Grace's Cathedral. From here it was just 2 blocks to our hostel. Here, the lower beds were not any more occupied so we took them instead of the stupid upper ones, so the next person who appeared in our dormitory had to sleep 'upstairs'. This person was Dan from Argentina. He wanted to go out, but we didnt join him, because of being tired. He left and we just fell asleep.

The weather seems nice :) Especially compared to freeeezing Poland (-15 today and it's suppose to drop below -20 tonight). Wasn't San Francisco the scene of this movie "Milk"?

I do hate the rain when you are trying to have fun. Sounds like you did despite the rain.
