arrived early afternoon and walked miles to a hostel that was pissin shut, again, so we walked to the next closest in an area called the tenderloin area. wat a fuckin place. i ahve never seen so many crackheads and degenerates as in that place. it was disgusting and very intimidating, a quality place to take ya kids to show em the path that drugs lead to. so, like the soft arses we are, we had an early one and left asap the next day to this cool hostel in china town surrounded by restaurants and titty bars
todays been spent sightseein the whole city, musta walked for about 10 miles but its been cool as iv now seen most of wat the spots got to offer. first up was to lombard street, which is the worlds cyrviest road or summat. sounds crap but its on telly loads and on tony hawks game and shit. pretty cool actually and has quality views. next up was to the marina for superb views of alcatraz and the golden gate bridge. we then walked to haight street for dinner which is a really trendy area where all the hippy movement originated or summat. then it was to castro which is the homo area, purely for curiosity as its menna be cool, but it was pretty mundane apart from a few of the rainbow flag thingys flyin about.
tomora i head actually into alcatraz for a tour and hopefully check out the bird mans and al capones old cells. off out tonight on a sesh to see lil louie vega again that we saw in new york. shud be a good un
.......... well, last night was a good un although slightly strange. turned out the club was predominantly homosexual clientel, which isnt my favourite thing but, sayi n that it was a good crack and the music was fantastic so al l in all it was a fun night
got up early today to hit alcatraz, i was rough as fuck and thought i were gonna puke ont ferry over but managed to keep it all in. the tour was wicked, really interestin and informative. the spot aint half as big and scary as i assumed it would be, it only held about 260 at one time. learnt about al capone, and the bird man, who incidently didnt have any birds at alcatraz, and the cells where the 3 dudes escape by diggin out there airvents with spoons. they still avnt been found but apparently everyone reckons they dround or got eaten by sharks.
