So much seems to have happened in SF that I really should be updating the blog more often. However now the car has gone we are walking around so much we generally get back to the hotel and simple collapse.
We have been busy visiting many museums and checking out all the tourist attractions.
We started by visiting the academy on sciences down in golden gate park. This is the museum with the living roof. The academy itself was a bit of a let down. However the aquaria was fantastic. With my personal favorite being the Giant Bass which easily dwarfed me.
We spent a while walking around golden gate park and decided to come back at a later date to visit the Tutankhamun [Sian assure me that is the correct spelling].
After the park we heading into Haight which is a funky district of SF, I amaged to absorb the local flavor by eating Quesadillas at ChaCha’s. I did want to go for the jerked chicken but it was cooked in raisins!
The next day we went on an open bus tour of SF and drove across the golden gate bridge. This was without a doubt the coldest windiest event of my life! Could of easily lost my hat and sunglasses!
Yesterday also signaled our hotel change. Which went far smoother than we imagined, dragging the cases through SF only took us a few minutes. The trouble started when Sian turned on the TV, which quickly exploded and poured out smoke into the room. After some complaining at the front desk we got moved to a room with 2 single beds. Less than ideal. Then to make things worse Sian found cockroaches in the bathroom. So a little more complaining and we are now on the executive floor!
Today saw the actual visit to the Tutunkahmun [pffff close enough spelling] exhibition. I believe Sian perhaps enjoyed this more than I did as it was ll a little dark. However the pieces at the end of the exhibition were fantastic. There was a tiny little version of his burial tomb for the liver! Was about the size of a KAWS stormtrooper [maybe only squid will get that size reference]
So thats pretty much SF so far condensed. I am going to try and post a little more regular so I can remember more of the unique little things we did.
Like keep visiting a pet store so Sian could see the Puggs awake
Our many trips to the pizzaria around the corner
The crazy homeless people who like my kicks
The MTV J Pop festival
The cosplay kids
The dude breaking his face in niketown
The bus driver who was comin up round here
Buffalo stew at Mikes Joynt [as recommended by the bus driver]
