Just come back from a week in San Francisco. Had a great time seeing the sights. Did the obligatory Alcatraz tour around the island, went on a cable car, watched a car drive too fast over a bump in the street and saw sparks flying out as its exhaust scraped along the ground.
There are 2 things we did that we really enjoyed.
We ate at King of Thai Noodle House about 3 times during our stay. The food was served in a canteen style but with table service. You could see the chefs cooking the food, which arrived at your table in about 5 minutes, delivered by an army of waitresses.
For an afternoon we hired a GoCar (on Beach Street) and drove around the city. A GoCar is a 3 wheeled cart wrapped around a moped engine. It has 2 seats, 3 wheels (2 at the front and 1 at the back) and a small boot. The cart is fitted with a GPS programmed with a guided tour of the city. While you are driving down the road, as well as giving you directions it tells you about the places and structures you are passing. You can take as many detours as you like and go where you want. It was top fun!
I can't wait until Google does the Street View for the rest of the world.
