I was browsing some photo albums this afternoon. I landed in one of  my  albums  taken in San Francisco, California. It is around 8 months now since my visit in this city. I experienced a lot there and I am so thankful about it. I only did not met good friends but I also experienced many interesting sights due to them.  To Ate Mary, Brianna and Jacky, thanks for being  great hosts  and  tour guides. I and my sister are forever grateful about it.  You are simply awesome!

San Francisco (Spanish for “Saint Francis”) was founded on June 29, 1776, when colonists from Spain established a fort at the Golden Gate and a mission named for St. Francis of Assisi a few miles away.  The California Gold Rush of 1849 brought rapid growth, making it the largest city on the West Coast at the time.

San Francisco  is a major city in California, the centerpiece of the Bay Area, well-known for its liberal community, hilly terrain, Victorian architecture, scenic beauty, summer fog, and great ethnic and cultural diversity. These are only a few of the aspects of the city that make San Francisco one of the most visited cities in the world.

It was only a 5-day trip in an Francisco but it seems that I stayed there for a month due to the many things I saw and experienced. Not only in SFO but in the nearby places too! It was indeed a nice and memorable trip I had in San Francisco. I am glad to experience the Golden Gate,  Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf,  the Union Square, Lombard Street, Palace of Fine Arts, Coit Tower  and many many more. It was simply amazing  in San Francisco and I truly had a wonderful time!
