San Francisco: Day 2

Hmmmm... I could get used to this.

Woke up this morning to the beautiful sight os skyscrapers out the window. After a leisurely start to the day, I took the elevator 23 floors down...Walked out the front door of the hotel, walked to an Bank of America ATM at 555 California Sreet*, made a few deposits... then kept walking to the job site. 101 2nd St.

I love this particular client -- very easy to get along with, very responsive when I need something. Just makes my life not a pain in the rear. Day went more or less smoothly; some technical issues that I need not go into here... then I walked back to the Hotel.

From the hotel I hit Coit Tower-- which I can't beleive I've never seen before-- some amazing views from the top, equally amazing were the murals surrounding the base. The old school elevator (with operator) is also just kind of cool. There are some very steep streets in San Francisco, particularly leading up to and down from the tower.

From Coit tower I walked down some neighborhood streets that were completely devoid of street signs, eventually arriving at The Embarcadero, proceeding to Fisherman's Wharf and my mecca -- In-N-Out Burger. Honestly the fries were a little overdone, but the burger satsfies a craving that I can only satisfy in California. Now that that's out of the way I promise to try some "more local" food for the rest of the week. If you have never had In-N-Out, I can not understate the importantce of trying it at least once. (My order is a #2 Spread Only)

After In-N-Out I walked back up the Embarcadero past the ferry terminal, cut up some really quiet streets and wound up at the base of the Transamerica Pyramid... it's an impressive building from the ground, but not nearly as smooth as it looks from a distance. From there it was back to the hotel and here is where I call it a night...

Until tomorrow.
