Where I stayed
Currently accommodating in Hispanic San Bruno area in South SF where we found the closest Super 8 motel to SF airport. The location was chosen because of the local mall which offered us great shopping opportunities before heading to Hawaii. It is amazing to feel the real Christmas spirit in traditional US mall…one of the highlights today! The locals rush in between the shelves in order to find their Christmas presents while the Christmas tunes grinding on the speakers. Of course there was a real Santa Claus meeting the kids and cashing the parents in the photo shoots
We were quite tired to concentrate on shopping so after few purchases we decided to have a nice light dinner and leave rest of the shopping to the Hawaiian Islands. Next to the mall was BJ’s Brewhouse and Restaurant which seemed a really busy diner. Therefore, we thought that it has to be good chow down. And it was! But the thing was we weren’t prepared to take on this food challenge as we were almost sleepwalking. So food won this time X2.
Now we can’t wait to step on the volcanic ground tomorrow.
