PHOTO DIARY: SAN FRANCISCO DAY 2 + 3

no more car on day 2; so we went walkabouts.

 

one thing about the states which i wish was different is the quality of the coffee – which sad to say, is MILES better in australia. ‘hipster’ specialised coffee is more or less a ‘normal’ coffee here. anyway, being the coffee snobs we are […0__O], we managed to find a pretty good coffee place along valencia st! called Four Barrels. quality stuff! with a huge coffee grinder thing in the back…love the setup of this place:D
