Earthquakes, Tolerance, Hippies, Trams, That Bridge, The Rock & Those Hills
Powell Street, San Francisco, California. March 31, 2013
I‘ve spent the guts of a week, split between two different visits either side of an 8-day California-Nevada-Arizona-California road trip, here in San Francisco, one of those premier world destinations I’ve always longed to visit and now have. Known for earthquakes, LGBT communities, hippies, and for being one of the most liberal and laid-back places on earth, there is lots to do & see here, the centrepiece of the Bay Area & one of the most visited cities in the US. But all that said, the simple highlight of the city for me was wandering the streets, camera in hand, enjoying the unique Victorian architecture & tackling the notoriously steep inclines (they are killers) as I went – views & pleasant surprises abound. San Francisco, one of the oldest, most beautiful and amazing cities in the world, is that kind of place. Yes it rained a lot and I got wet a few times but that’s hardly worth mentioning, even though I just did.

One of the first stops for me in the city was a tram down the waterfront Embarcadero to AT&T Park, the home of the San Francisco Giants. Snooping around the outside one of the most beautiful stadiums in baseball was a thrill.
As enjoyable as snooping around the exterior of AT&T park was on my first visit to the city last week (& it was), getting inside to see a game was even better, something I did upon my return to the city from my road trip a few days ago.

What’s San Francisco with its trams?
