I decided to escape the East Coast cold & spend it in San Francisco, California. I enjoyed exploring the city and seeing the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. I visited Silicon Valley, the world’s technology hub, Chinatown, Little Italy, and Santa Cruz, I then spent New Year’s and Christmas time with my relatives. One of my favorite experiences from the holidays was driving through the most crooked street in the world, Lombard Street.
