It is very cold in San Fransisco! Oh no!
I was informed that San Fransisco was very much like a European city, but I did not expect it would resemble Europe even in the temperatures. The climate was a bit of a disappointment. I was walking across the street in my shorts, flip flops and a t-shirt and even the homeless people were looking at me in a strange way.
I parked my car just for a second in a place where you should not park. Suddenly some Japanese guy starts talking to me telling me I need to move the car a few meters to the rear. I comply and back the car up two meters thinking that now everyone can be happy. Wrong, I exit the car and close the door. Lock it, and realize my mistake. The keys are still inside.
I was not amused.
But I was in luck. The first think I did was head over to the first person in uniform I could find. This person listens to my story and steps right on the middle of the road to stop a big truck that was passing by. The truck driver was also some official who could open my car for a mere $55. That $55 would be returned by my triple A insurance. The guy get his Slim Jim, walks over to my car and poses a second for a picture and truly, in a mere 10 seconds he opened my car.
I just arrived :-)
Passing by car SF sure looks like an interesting city, just like in the movies with some very steep roads.
Now to find a piece of beach so I can spend my last week here relaxing in the sun working on my tan and then head back to Holland.
