PHOTO DIARY: SAN FRANCISCO DAY 1

too many photos so going to have to break it up…

 

as part of his american adventure, mr poojou decided he would drive up the coast from LA to SF, visiting Big Sur via Highway 1. consequently, after a few hrs of sleep we were up at 5am to drive for 8 hours to san francisco…

it was like this for hours on end. just road…and more road…and more road…

 

found a mirage. haha just kidding! found a random breakfast stop – including an IHOP in the middle of nowhere. i was kind of excited though, since id heard so much about that pancake place.

my berry nut pancakes + egg substitute, which was kind of disgusting.

 

gotta say i was quite underwhelmed by IHOP…definitely expected the pancakes to be better and fresher! kind of artificial tasting…especially that freakin egg substitute -__- use real eggs!!

 

….more driving.

my friend zinnie hung out with me at night; took me downtown for a bit then a italian restaurant in mission.  noticed that SF is quite the hipster city; everywhere reminds me of Fitzroy/Brunswick, very very like melbourne!
