hello, san francisco

this is your mind, on california.

when you book a trip like this through, they choose the cities and then you choose the "round-the-world" type package that you want.

the down-under far-east package had its departure/return point as san francisco. ..i didn't really want hang out in a city, but was forced (due to the cost of holiday flight) to stay here a couple of days in order to catch the el cheapo flight on thanksgiving day.
SFO-PVD at 0600 on 27 november arrives at 1735 e.s.t.

can't wait to get to rhode island for the family re-Union.

above : my view and room, at the green tortise hostel on broadway, in san francisco.

with a couple of days to kill in cali, i opted for:

* a napa valley & sonoma county winery tour

* a tour of the city (fisherman's warf, golden gate bridge, etc.)

* a trip to muir woods, to view the giant sequoia trees

posts to follow.
