It's such an amazing place. From the grand 'painted ladies' (the name given to the amazing classic San Fran bay-window home, looking like beautifully decorated cake) peering regally over the hilly streets, to the grime and grit of the Mission Area and the TL, San Fran doesn't fail to entice and engage. The history of the beatniks and boho's near Columbus, and the hippies and stoners of Haight and Ashbury texturise the streets, stores and homes. Sure Fishermans' Wharf is full of tourists (like me!) but it is also home to the amazing meal of clam chowder. Gotta get the sourdough bowl! All in all, San Fran charmed me. Like I made a new friend, someone who I really really want to hang out with more!
