After spending this incredible day -the last of 2013- in Death Valley, we were back on the road, heading North towards the second stop we had planned: San Francisco. Of course, a not-so-planned stop happened in-between because, basically, we also needed to eat and sleep! But we finally made it to San Francisco in the afternoon of the 1st of January, just in time to admire the Golden Gate Bridge in the light of sunset.
Obviously, it is difficult to say anything truly original about this city because it completely is a part of our collective imagination, be it for its history, its cultural references or simply because we all saw at some point photos of its vertiginous streets, we all saw films with the Golden Gate Bridge or Alcatraz.
So even though I'm not going to add anything new to all the things that have already been said or written about San Francisco, I simply wanted to share my enthusiasm and emotion to find myself in this beautiful city. The very geographical setting reminds of its dramatic history but the colours are vivid and the cultural diversity that became apparent to me after only a quick first tour in different neighbourhoods is quite captivating. More photos to come soon...
