San Francisco, 2011

Such a nice town.

We were only here for 2 nights, but the weather was amazing. Streets bathed in bright sunlight and wrapped in a winter chill. There was no time to visit Pixar, Apple or Alcatraz, but it was a great bookend to the America trip.

Upon landing in the concrete jungle you immediately feel its culture, modern history and its status as a remarkable melting pot of nationalities. In the end though I was a tad disappointed for not indulging in more of the ‘New Yawker’ type things like: riding the subway, eating in a diner and getting a haircut in Queens. But one place we happily stumbled upon and has ignited my passion for frozen yoghurt was a delightful little hang out called Pink Berry.

One thought that’s constantly been on my mind since this leg of the trip is an obvious observation: the vibe and soul of a place can be heightened through lenses.
