Two days in San Fransisco

Facing and feeling the teperature from five, rising to ten degree Celsius is no big deal. But it does make a big change when moving from under dark clouds with light showers and to look up towards a sunny and bright sky. It did make a big difference to me when I landed at San Fransisco from Seattle. Sharing my two days experience with you.

We stayed comfortably at Westin St Francis hotel located in a busy part of the city. It overlooked the Union Square, which enabled me to have its arial view through my room window

Came down to have a closer look at the Square

Moving further downtown:

Crookedest Street

Lombard Street is an east–west street in San Francisco, California that is famous for a steep, one-block section with eight hairpin turns. Stretching from The Presidio east to The Embarcadero, most of the street’s western segment is a major thoroughfare designated as part of U.S. Route. Wikepedia. Enjoy the ride!

On March 21, 1963, US Prison Alcatraz closed after 29 years of operation.The Federal Government found that it was more cost-effective to build a new institution than to keep Alcatraz open. After the prison closed, Alcatraz was basically abandoned. It is now atourist spot and has figured in movies

The world famous Ghirardelli chocolate has been making life a bite better since 1852. 

Met two cousins of my late wife. Sharing the fine view from the terrace of a cousin’s mansion.

Imagine a sunny Seattle throughout the year! No way acceptablle to Jafar! Let the residents of San Fransisco continue to enjoy the sunny weather alongwith high cost of living, overcrowding and lack of greenery due to drought conditions.
