390 Stairs, Pork Buns and Hipsters
Today was perfection. Here are the quick and dirty highlights. I promise to elaborate further on the whole trip when we get home, but today just the highlights!
4.5 hour walking tour covering the entire history of the city with Anton, the most mellow cheerful tour guide in the Bay area.
390 lush, green and secluded steps down the side of Filbert cliff
A shared piece of sacripantina cake from Stella's Bakery in North Beach
A panoramic view of the city from the top of Coit Tower worth every bit of $5
2.5 hours of splendid dim sum, fantastic conversation and catching up with old friends
Being the only white people in all of Portsmouth Park in Chinatown
Sushi picnic in bed after 12 hours of site-seeing
The best chai and banana cream pie this side of the Mississippi
New hoop earrings and a scarf festooned with umbrellas from Theory in the Mission District
One of the best days of 2011, at least so far.
