Pictures of San Francisco

A close friend told me, San Francisco was a nice place to visit and could find many Asians staying there compared to other states in America. She convinced me that I would able to adapt and love San Francisco very much. When William and I visited America's Embassy, the Immigration Officer told us the same thing too. How truth is it? The only thing I know about San Francisco is the Golden Gate Bridge and the rows of Victorian houses (the clips I had seen from The Full House series which were acted by Mary-Kate Olsen and Alsey Olsen). Yes, the twin sisters acted as the little girl named "Michelle."

However, the opportunity to know more about San Francisco landed when William had to be there for two weeks on his business trips.

William stayed at Stanford Park Hotel in the City of Palo Alto (about 40 minutes drive from the City of San Francisco). He spent US$159 per night but breakfast was not provided.

These are some pictures taken during his business trip. I will explore and share more pictures of San Francisco when we move there by November 2009. Before coming to the end, here is a video showing how the tram changes its track/route at confining street in the city? (I'm sorry.. unable to adjust the setting of video's position... you have to double click the video so that you can view it clearly on youtube)
