playing the tourist

I’m a little late in posting these, but better late than never. As I might have mentioned, I’ve been staying with my sister in California for a bit (I’m not there currently, but will be back on Sunday) playing personal assistant. Well, since Sarah had never been to “the city”, as any NorCal resident calls it, she decided that she would come visit me while I was there.

It was four whirlwind days of tourism, but really we got a lot accomplished. I got to revisit some of my favorite childhood places, spend lots of money at H&M (my favorite store ever) and a few other places, visit the SFMOMA (I’d never been there), actually eat in Chinatown (something I’ve always wanted to do), etc., etc. It was so fun to reconnect with my favorite city ever (yes, it beats New York, Chicago, Barcelona, Paris, Florence…all of them). I do hope I get to move back there someday. The ocean, the culture, the people, the food, the parks, the hills, the bridges…it really is the perfect city.

Anyway, here is a glimpse of our trip in photo form. Really, we got to see so much. I was kind of amazed, especially since we squeezed in a movie and spent a good chunk of time just chillin’ (like villains about to start killin’…I’ve been spending a little too much time with my 14-year-old nephew this week).

This first picture is actually not in SF, it’s in Oakland, but it is one of my favorite places. And the beautiful Rodin was actually at the Stanford Art Museum in Palo Alto. Otherwise, they are all in or of the city.

  1. Gorgeous pictures. . . Bart and I are going to SF for our anniversary next month. You should email me and tell me what we CAN’T miss. Or do a Tourists guide on your blog 🙂

  2. Great pictures. I also love San Francisco – more than NY, London or Paris. Sad that we only live 4 and a half hours away and don’t go there more often.
