San Francisco, Day 2

We started the day with a walk down Haight Street and continued to the Castro district. From there we walked further to Mission district, which is the oldest district in the city. It is mainly a Hispanic neighborhood. We stopped for great quesadillas for lunch, and took a bus to Fisherman’s Wharf. This is the centre of tourism in town, but still nice, and we got the first glance of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. After a little shopping we waited in line for the cable car to take us downtown. This was a fun experience, almost like taking a rollercoaster through town, and something you just have to do when in San Francisco. Downtown was as it is in every major city, loud, full of people and stressful. We took a quick look around and headed back to Haight Street, and were even more appreciative of its originality.
