San Francisco

, originally uploaded by Dan Lilly.

Chinatown they said. Golden Gate, Alcatraz they said. But that's not how I roll. WHO goes to San Francisco and looks for the cliche' and over-photographed? LOSERS, that's who. So I head for the Castro District and was kinda disappointed that the gay area of the gayest city on the planet was kinda boring. Granted, I didn't wander off the main street of the area. Too much porn, not enough eclectic.

Then I headed for the Mission District and found a rich Hispanic cultural statement in the dozens of wall sized murals even if the food was kinda lame.

Then walking down Mission back toward downtown, I stumbled upon another alley of wall sized murals.

So for the first trip to San Francisco, and given that I only had one day to explore, I came away with a wonderful impression of a city that is like no other in the U.S.

Thank you San Francisco. I will return to you.

that mural is pretty spectacular.
San Francisco will always be home. No matter where I am at, it always calls to me, to come home.
