On an unusually sunny and warm Sunday in San Francisco I walked from my apartment on Nob Hill through the Financial District to the Embarcadero.
The Chinese New Year Parade is the biggest in the USA. I spent a cool evening watching the parade close to Chinatown. The highlight was the huge dragon - the longest in the USA.
The California Academy of Science recently underwent a huge renovation and now everything Thursday night is open for Nightlife, food, drink, music and science.
I went for a walk around my neighbourhood and in to Chinatown. My first stop was Grace Cathedral and in Chinatown the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory
While my dad was picking up his race packet for Bay to Breakers, I had a look around City Hall. The City Hall opened in 1915, occupies two city blocks and is topped by the fifth largest dome in the world. It was here that Mayor George Moscone and Harvey Milk were assassinated in 1978.
Bay to Breakers is a 12km race through San Francisco. Although a lot of people run the race seriously it’s also an excuse for people to dress up and have a 12km party through the city.
I took my dad to see the San Francisco Giants take on the New York Mets at AT&T Park. We had amazing seats in the Lexus Dugout club, three rows behind home plate.
