San Francisco &CO (Part II)

Some days ago I explained you about the first part of my visit to San Francisco when I went to crazy Las Vegas. When we came back to San Francisco I must admit I was exhausted! But there are so many things to do and see that you cannot stop!
In the mornings my friend B had to go to the academy, I was initally worried (at least when I was planning the trip from Barcelona) that I would feel lonely and strange to be on my own during the mornings. But in fact it was quite a positive experience! I had the time to walk around, make tours (like Alcatraz) and have some time to think about my things, this doesn't usually happen in my trips. At lunch time I would pick up B to grab some lunch and do something in the afternoon, like visiting the Painted Ladies or shopping Haight-Ashbury. Nightlife is also a big thing in San Francisco!! We went on Tuesday to a Happy Hour club (very dangerous ;)) and on Thursday to Infusion both around Union Square.

Hace algunos dias os expliqué la primera parte de mi visita a San Francisco, la escapada a Las Vegas. Cuando volvimos a San Francisco estábamos muertas! Pero hay tantas cosas que ver y hacer que no podíamos perder ni un momento!
Por las mañanas B tenía clases, de primeras yo estaba preocupada (al menos mientras planeaba el viaje desde Barcelona) creyendo que me sentiría muy solitaria y extraña estando sola por las mañanas... pero de hecho acabó siendo una experiencia bastante positiva! Tuve tiempo para poder pasear tranquilamente, a mi ritmo hacer algún tour (como Alcatraz), y dedicar algo de tiempo a pensar en mis cosas! Parece mentira pero en muchos viajes el ritmo es tan alto que apenas tengo tiempo para reflexionar! A la hora de comer, pasaba a buscar a B para comer algo juntas y hacer algo por las tardes. 

*Musts: Cable car ride, Painted Ladies, views of Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower views (from the top)
*The F-Line, storic streetcars... cute and more affordable than cable car!
*Don't miss the Alcatraz cruise... specially in foggy days is very impacting!
*Shopping in Haight-Ashbury, where Summer of Love started in 1969.. you can still feel the hippie-chic atmosphere!
*Bike tour by the Golden Gate bridge to Sausalito: Totally recommended! it takes a whole day but it's an amazing experience. You can easily rent bikes around Fisherman's Wharf.
*If you are planning on staying more that 2 days have a look on MUNI passports, they're totally worth it!
*And of course, couldn't miss the stylistic recommendations!!!

*Musts: Montar en tranvía, las Painted Ladies, las vistas del Golden Gate, la Coit Tower (subir)
*La Linea-F, muy mona y mas asequible que los tranvías!
*El crucero a Alcatraz! especialmente en dias nubosos es espeluznante
*Shopping en Haight-Ashbury...donde empezó el Summer of Love en 1969... aun se puede sentir el hippie-chic
*Ir en bici hasta Sausalito pasando por el Golden Gate: Impresionante! Tardas practicamente todo un dia pero es genial! Es fácil alquilar bicis cerca de Fisherman's Wharf
*Y por supuesto que no falten las recomendaciones estilisticas!!!
