San Francisco Musings

San Francisco was a blast. What a beautiful, alive city! I don’t think I missed much. The Golden Gate Bridge was much more magnificent in real life. Lombard Street was a TRIP! Chinatown was alive and hopping even late into the night. Fisherman’s Warf provided the best seafood I have ever eaten in my life amid an ambience that only San Francisco can offer.

So here is my top 10 San Francisco-style:

  1. The Golden Gate Bridge - nothing more to add
  2. Napa Valley – esp. the Berringer and Sterling Wineries
  3. Lombard Street – glad I wasn’t the one driving.
  4. City Lights Bookstore – it was like stepping back in time
  5. Winery Tour at Sterling Vineyard– producing and distributing of wine is fascinating
  6. Ghirardelli Square – who can say no to chocolate
  7. Fisherman’s Warf Part I – this is a cultural experience like no other.
  8. Napping in a park next to the Bay
  9. Fisherman’s Warf Part II – the absolute best Dungeness crab I have ever eaten.
  10. Culinary Institute of America – this was, by far, the best dining experience. The food was amazing and watching the culinary experts prepare the food was captivating.
