Random Road Trip Day 6 – Exploring San Francisco

My brother-in-law Rich Comstock showed me around San Francisco today. We walked to Grace Cathedral which has fancy doors engraved with scenes from the Bible:

And here’s Rich standing near the corner of the Cathedral:

And I am compelled to share an image of the famous San Francisco cable-cars:

And then we walked up to the Cable Car Station/Museum where we saw the huge wheels that keep the cable moving:

And here’s a shot of me with the famous Transamerica pyramid in the background:

The Green, White, and Red stripes on the pole indicate that I was in the Italian district. That’s the most delightful thing about San Francisco. It has many districts with distinct ethnic and cultural flavors – Little Saigon, China Town, Japanese, Mission, Castro, Tenderloin, Financial … I barely got a chance to get a glance of a few of them. I’m already planning my next visit to this vigorous and variegated town. It’s full of people of all races and styles. Endlessly interesting and dynamic.
