San Fran!

Yep if you guessed San Francisco you would be right! So far I have been around the markets, up to Pier 39 and had some awesome sea food at a Bubba Gumps restaurant and went in a mini Planet Hollywood with some cool junk inside. Just been walking around and seeing what's going on really.

Yesterday I went on a bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge, it was (as you can see below) very sunny... Good ride though extremely windy on the bridge. Got to the other side and cycled through Sausalito the little town just north of the bridge, then on round to Tiburon where I had some mega fish and chips and got the ferry back to San Fran. Wicked!

Guess where I am!

This is a picture of a famous city, the roads and hills should give it away quite quickly! Where am I?

Middle America

Just got off my Greyhound bus from Minneapolis to San Francisco! I think the trip took in 9 states and was about 2,200 miles long, it did take over 56 hours! I saw this at a truck stop and thought it looked like classic Americana so took a snap.

Whilst of the bus I sat next to a bloke covered in tattoos... he asked me where I was going and I said "San Fran, where have you come from today?" he looked at me and said "Oh I just got released from the state penitentiary." I studied his face but he seemed pretty legit about the whole deal. Later I would learn that ex-cons get a Greyhound ticket to anywhere they want in the country on leaving prison so they can get home. I asked him if he was going to get his tats coloured in and he said "No" in a rather unimpressed voice... I guess I should have realised from the 88's where his sideburns would have been (88 for HH or 'Heil Hitler') and the swastika on the crown of his head that he might not be that into colours...

The Zombies of Minneapolis

I arrived in Minneapolis a few days ago, staying in a nice hotel just outside of down town. Clean nice place by all accounts. Met up with some fellow deviants from dA and got down to some zombying!

A good time had by all!
