of seagulls ,san francisco, skeletons and sailing boats

last week a fast jump from the Nevada desert to San Francisco...
i think we covered pretty much everything ...from cable cars to boats under the golden gate bridge,good Italian food,bagel dogs (one eyebrow raised) ,china town,trams from Milano,...(wierd ... what are they doing here i travel on them every day in Italy...)
beautiful Americana retro trams from the 50s ,antique game halls at the ferry terminal and fabulous shops entitled ...
"tasty salted pig parts"
ermmmmm i guess you cant really go wrong .... :D

old frescoes of the building of the transcontinental railroad,
love the mix of wall art and construction here

throughout the city are old poster stands, lamp posts and public toilets imported from Paris
...its a bizarre mix of modern American culture and recognisable European classic pieces



its a good looking city ...reminds me a little of Sydney and Auckland
(apart from all the Americans)...


watching street theatre down at the fishermans wharf i was attacked by enormous marionette human skeletons,....



completely traumatised ...they were horrifically giant and real



recovering my equilibrium....

Heh heh... sounds like you got a lot from the SF experience!! :) It was great to hear your perceptions of the things your encountered that I wouldn't think of... like the trams and the imported toilets! :)
