Final stop in the US is Los Angeles.
We arrived in San Francisco today and only have one full day, so we made the most of it. We took the 49 mile senic drive around the city which took in all of the major sites. We then strolled along the San francisco Bay and visited Pier 39, where you can see both the Alcatraz prison and also the sealions. We then walked along Fishermans Wharf, had lunch in the aquatic park and walked up some of the famous hills which are so steep! We ended up in Chinatown which is the largest Chinese community outside of Asia, and there is even a Japantown! Next we got back in the car and drove over to the Golden Gate Bridge, where we then walked over. We finally headed over to the beach and looked around the Golden Gate Park.
