we arrived in the golden gate city around 8pm after a very easy flight. first class wasn’t full so once the service was over we got our pick of the meals. i had a lobster appetizer with a garden salad. the main dish options were chicken, steak, or seafood. i tried the steak, but it of course didn’t meet my southern expectations so i just ate some plantains and grilled veggies. just when i thought i couldn’t eat anymore, the sundaes emerged. oh. my. gosh. blue bell definitely has competition!
the next day was spent wandering the city from the financial district to chinatown, fisherman’s wharf to golden gate state park. at first things seemed so foreign, but then i recognized places from past visits. something i never noticed before was the french influence. many of the restaurants were french cafe style and there were french pastries, crepes, etc to be found everywhere!
