San Francisco, part 1 (June 21, 2009)

The morning in a methodist church to listen gospel music. Walk on the streets of San Francisco and bike tour over the Golden Gate Bridge in the afternoon.

Streets of San Francisco


We woke up early for this first day in San Francisco, the time difference between Europe and the US helped a lot. We’ve been in Glide Memorial Church, a methodist church, to see and listen a performance by a Gospel choir. It was interesting to know how American churches are different from European churches. During one hour, everybody is singing and listening to testimonies from former detainees or junkies. God's message is love and compassion!

Then we strode along the streets of San Francisco. We crossed Financial District, China Town, North Beach and reached Fisherman’s Wharf. We followed one of the cable car lines of San Francisco. San Francisco’s cable cars are pretty cool!

The Golden Gate Bridge


Fisherman’s Wharf is a good place to rent a bike. Not only is the area flat, it is also the easiest place in San Francisco to access the Golden Gate Bridge. So we rented a bike each for the day and rode across the Golden Gate Bridge. It was also great to have a sunny day because it’s not usual; it’s often foggy in summer.
The Golden Gate Bridge is the largest suspension bridge in the world and an internationally renowned symbol of San Francisco. This bridge spans the Golden Gate which is opening into the San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean. Completed during the year 1937, it was the longest suspension bridge span in the world until 1964.
