Y.S.N.P 2012 day 15+16: San Francisco

My friends Maurice and Alex from Munich lived and worked since two years in San Francisco.

I finally wanted to visit them on this US trip. I arrived 9.20 am with a morning flight from Las Vegas at the SFO airport where Maurice and Alex picked me up and we drove directly to Bernal Heights for a first amazing city view and afterwards we had breakfast in a diner in the Mission district. Saturday became a wonderful hot June sunday. We walked around in the Mission district and Alex and Maurice showed me the mural paintings which are typical for this district. I really liked those and made many fotos. Afterwards we drove to the Castro district where they showed me where they had lived for some month. Herefter we went to Lands end viewpoint and visited the old sutro bath ruins. Then we drove to a Polish butcher to buy breakfast suasages 🙂 (really). Afterwards we drove to a Fort Point, an excellent vievpoint for the Golden Gate Bridge. Finally we drove over the Golden Gate Bridge to the Muir Beach Overlook with amazing vistas on the californian coastline. We had a hot lovely June saturday, according Alex and Maurice  one of the first really hot ones this year. We all got sunburned. The next stop before driving back over the golden Gate bridge was the Marin Headlands viewpoint to the Golden Gate bridge. It was the viewpoint I liked the most of all because it centered the whole Golden Gate in front of the City skyline. After crossing Golden Gate bridge we stopped immediately for another amazing view onto the Golden Gate bridge. Then we drove to downtown to Chinatown. After walking some sidestreets and visiting a fortune cookie factory we went for diner in the House of Nanking. Sunday after breakfast we watched the Germany-Danmark Euro soccer match. In the afternoon I took the ferry to San Francisco downtown and walked around in Embacadero-Ferry Building-Maarket Street-Union Square-F-Line to Fishermans Warf and finally took the Bart to SFO Airport to fly back to Las Vegas.
