san francisco, day 2

Walked along Fisherman's Wharf.

Bought silver ring from SF artisan at sidewalk flea market.

Took Powell-Hyde cable car to Lombard, took snapshots of the crookedest street in the world, with dozens of other tourists.

Got back on cable car, went back to Sam Wo for lunch (totally addictive).

Took cable car back to wharf, got sunblock at Walgreens (too much sun in SF!!).

Went to Ghirardelli Square, got asked by a bunch of Filipinas to take their picture, and was told I didn't look Filipino. Hmmm.

Got chocolate blueberries for the guys in the office.

Saw a small exhibit of Dali prints. Price range: $1,500-$6,000.

Went to Mission Dolores. Finally, this city is getting interesting. Visited the basilica, then the original chapel from the 1770s. Stayed to listen as a church chorister practiced an angelic Lenten song ("Gift of Finest Wheat"?).

Took the coolest cable car ever, the original Banca Italiana car with wooden bench seats and glass lamps. See pic below.

Found Boy Bawang cornicks at Walgreens for merienda.

Got picked up by sis around 7, had grilled swordfish and chowder dinner at Sabella & La Torre on the wharf.

Walked around Ghirardelli Square to burn off all the calories.

Waited endlessly for Earth Day lights out, which didn't happen (too much commerce to bother being green?).
