I arived at San Francisco tired from the hike in Big Sur, and then got out and walked all over the sloping streets.
First we walked around the piers and found a great little market. I got some sauce and naan bread and it was great. I sat down by the harbor and ate the bread surrounded by obese pigeons. I love birds. Later I walked around and got help from a guy in tight pink running pants.
I went up to a tower. I had to climb a lot of stairs to get there and it was super cool. People's back yards gave way to these stairs, it must be incredibly cool to go to school by climbing down a bajillion stairs every morning. At the tower I had to go to the bathroom, but I had to pay 25 cents. What kind of place is this?
After that I went back down and got a bike rental to bike across the golden gate bridge.

My dad wanted to get a tandem bike because he had never been on one before. We figured it out after a while. I was in the back, so I basically just pedalled and looked at the view. It was great. The houses are all really cute and chic. As we approached the bridge we had to do some complicated maneuver to get onto the bike side of the bridge, so we fell down. It was okay though. Biking across the golden gate was super awesome. I watched a boat go underneath. At the other end, we went down to the little Sausalito. I got some Starbucks and it felt great. Sausalito is really nice but a little too touristy. We waited by the dock for the ferry to come by. There were many bikes on the boat once it arrived from all the people who had done the same bike trip. Biking back up to the bike rental shop was the toughest part. It was really steep.
After we returned the bikes we walked around China town and got some really cheap food. It was also really delicious. We ended up giving the guy a really large tip because the food was so underpriced. I think I got a plate of noodles for a dollar and fifty cents.
Later on we drove to Los Gatos and stayed in a motel. The next day we went back South towards Santa Barbara.
