San Fran

San FranCisco was so beautiful I could actually live there. There wasn't a cloud in the sky or a person who came up to me and asked me for a quarter. Everyone says there is lots of homeless in San Fran, but i think they are tamer than in other areas.


Everyday in San Fran I walked around. I hopped on a street car, found out it was  5 dollars, then hoped off with this mexcian guy called Daniel. Sometimes when your travelling, you meet random people in random ways. Sometimes you meet people because they are also tight arses. Daniel is a newly graduated mexican doctor,who reminded me of the guy from that 70's show and he liked to randomly call out to girls running along the beach. He showed me pictures of his graduating class. Ive never seen so many beautiful girls in all my life. I am kicking myself for not going to mexico! Another random way to meet people is when someone asks you to take their picture. We bumped in an Argentinian girl who tagged along with us as well.


I quite enjoyed the hostel i stayed at. It was like a hotel that is now a hostel, and everyone seemed to be on the end of their trip. Lots of brits who have just been to thailand, aus, nz, fiji. Such a common british path. It has become apparent that when staying in a hostel I always ending up making friends with the people that frequent the tv room. The tv room in this place was like a basement hideaway. It was dark and had a good couch setup. Literally I sat with the same 5 people every single day. We all had the same seats. The furthest some walked was to the subway accross the road. I have overdosed on That 70's show, Scrubs and Reno 911. See the bad thing about cable in America is that they dont just show the show you like. They will play like 10 episodes in a row so you cant leave!


The only bad thing about San Fran was a crazy guy from LA who wouldnt stop following me and a couple of people around. Any famous person you mentioned he knew in someway. Including Chuck Norris. It turns out he was from Venice beach LA, so i decided to not book a Hostel in Venice beach. This guy was so weird that he would check out in the morning, walk out with his gear and then check back in every night. I think he was a mental defective or something.

I didnt do much in San Fran that cant be explained in a picture. Played a bit of pool, ate a lot of spaghetti. I walked around non stop every day for 6 days. Its a killer when you see these 90 degree vertical hills. I explored all the famous sites from movies and tv (such as the Rock, and Full House!), including a tourist packed Alcatraz and the park and houses from full house.
