Alright, I haven’t written in a while so this’ll sum up the days since my last post.
First things first, I went to Fisherman’s Wharf, and boy is it a tourist trap. Everything is insanely expensive and feels kind of cheap, though I got a couple of good shots here. I also took a tour of the city via bus, which turned out to be $25 well spent – Golden Gate Bridge,the Painted Ladies, Chinatown, Little Italy, etc were all there, the trip was certainly educational. I was especially impressed by the palace of Fine Arts, those pillars and buildings are HUGE and you feel like you are in ancient Rome or something!
Also, I discoveredy that I apparently had my camera in .3 megapixel mode, which is why the pictures were so very small. The quality should improve somewhere around the end.
And then, I walked back. My feet still hurt just thinking about that – San Francisco is built on many hills, and it sure felt like I was touring over all of them.
The beer sampling in the evening went well, two out of three beers were quite tasty though I didn’t much like the pils we had. It was way too weak, felt like drinking bad tap water.
Other than that, I also walked to the place I’ll be staying at from August 4th onwards, and the neighbourhood is really nice. I think the stay there will be fun. Hopefully also not quite as expensive as Downtown, though that shouldn’t be hard. (No pictures yet though)
I also went to the shop Gamescape nearby, and though it isn’t quite what I’d call Nerdvana it certainly comes close. I know where I’ll be spending most of my Fridays now. And yes, apparently they have every book for the New World of Darkness ever released. For sticker price, too.
And that’s it for now, I want to get out of the house. Maybe try out that mexican place down the street for lunch, their food looked tasty – or maybe that japanese restaurant in the mall, I got a coupon for them.
