Shrnutí v češtině: Po několika dnech jsme se dostali zpátky do civilizace. Odpoledne a dvě noci jsme strávili u J sestřenice a její rodiny ve městě San Jose. Dostali jsme najíst, napít, vyprali jsme si, dostali se na internet, byli pozvání na večeři a zajeli si na jednodenní výlet do blízkého San Franciska. A ze San Jose jsme nakonec odletěli na Havaj.
Next day we drove an hour into San Francisco and done a tour of Alcatraz Island (about 20min ferry crossing from Pier 33). We had booked it before we left which was lucky as it was all booked up days in advance. The weather was really hot and sunny which was apparently very rare for San Francisco at this time of year. The views were great and the tour interesting (free audio tour). We got back to the mainland and had lunch of clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl and fish and chips at the famous Fisherman’s Wharf/Pier 39. The cable car that climbs the very steep hills is another main tourist activity but the queues were an hour long so we just walked it up to Lombard Street- a crazy street that zigzags down a steep hill. J drove from there over the Golden Gate Bridge to the nature area on the other side- this was really worthwhile and highly recommended as the view across the bay was among the best we’d ever seen.
We left early the next morning for a short drive to San Jose airport, returned our beloved car and boarded our 5 hour flight to Honolulu on Oahu Island. Our netbook is completely caput so we’ll try to buy a new one in Hawaii.
