San Francisco was a whole lot of fun, staying with old friends (again) in Oakland, we drank Blue Bottle coffee, got the ferry to Sausalito and looked for crabs in the rocks by the bay, wandered the galleries and the Mission, bought vintage clothes and Pirate Supplies and generally lived it up. We drank pitchers of beer and lemony ale and played pool in a dive bar. We enjoyed a miraciously sunny mid-November afternoon and to celebrate ate amazing margherita pizza and tried pigs ears with lime and chilli oil at Pizzeria Delfina (highly recommended). We washed it down with root beer and pomegranate mimosa and a whole crowd of friends squeezed into one tiny booth.

It was only a few days, but it gave me a taste of this town and I have to say I liked it a lot.
