The Road Trip - Part 7(California) - San Francisco 

Finally we reached back our old home - San Francisco, on the evening of September 10, Wednesday. The drive back from LA to SF was pretty uneventful except for the fact that it ate up most of Wednesday. We reached SF downtown by evening, after leaving LA at 12pm.

We used to live in the Bay Area before we moved to the Artic Circle. San Francisco is still the same sweet fog city, so different and pleasant from the rest of the desert style environs of California which surrounds it. It doesn't have the highly-irrigated-false-greenery -covering-over-the-real-desert look of Sacramento or Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay Area is a class apart, having a micro climate of its own. For the two days we were there we stayed at a friend's place in downtown SF.

I don't feel like writing much about San Francisco in a touristy way because it had been home for some time and we used to show our friends around the city whenever they visited us. This was the first time that the roles were reversed. Having endured the boredom of visiting and revisiting the famous tourist spots like Fisherman Wharf, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, the day ended with us deciding just to visit Ghirardeli the next day to get some of their famous chocolate and nowhere else in the city.
