A snapshot of San Francisco

After a week at Stanford Graduate School, more about that in another post, I was able to stay on for a few days which gave me a whole weekend in San Francisco. What to do, so much to see and do but hmm I am out of practice exploring by myself so I opted to mooch about with a sort of plan rather than even try to see everything. 

Would I go back, maybe. Was I prepared for the amount of homelessness, definitely not, and I did a lot of reading before I left.  My highlight was definitely STUFF on Valencia Street; a massive vintage warehouse with multiple traders and oh so cheap but how to get all the lovely treasures home (errm STUFF was closely followed by a little trip to Bed Bath and beyond).  Low point, the hills, yep they actually freaked me out so I stayed where everything was horizontal, not easy in San Francisco!
So here it is a weekend in pictures, in no particular order.

San Francisco was described to me as Mecca for the homeless

The Goodwill store on Mission Street is the largest charity shop I have ever been to
