Well, we wemt as saw the all famouse, sing and dancing alcatraz today, we saw the golden gate bridge, and ... ah the san fran cable cars. We got a guided tour from this san fran chick, (no).
This place has been fun. Were starting to understand the culture here, and its been a big diff from australia. We got dumped into the worst place in sanfran were most of the shootings occur, and where havin a ball.
Tip : The burbon and cokes are really 'burbon and a little coke'. Theu fill the glass 80% with burbon, then put in a spalsh of coke @ the end, demand your passport, then u pay them for the drink, and leave an extra dollar on the counter to justify the shit house wages (tipping).
Alcatraz :: It was novel. The person i was travellin with, wasn't to impressed, but I had fun. We saw al capoones cell, and all the other tools that were there, and got insight int theor escape plans ... yada yada yada WHAT EVERE (ask me later for more detail).
What else.. We saw the golden gate bridge, cept it was real foggy. Ps- the temp here is spot on canberra. Its sunny as hell, summer, tho its freezing. (I was hangig off a tram this arvo, and I was freezin my nutz off).
What else have we done :: Well, i'm hanging over the counter of the HI (hostelling international (ameicas equiv if the youth hostel in australia)). And i'm sending it from here, so the dude is hittin on the chick i'm staying with, so he doesn't care + It costs like AU$5 to send email, bah, like i'm gonna make that investment.
Theres a bum in the room next to me selling bloody shit house croched (subject to speeling) hats, which are real crap, and wouldn't save an otta from the san fram bay (yes, there here).
She was crapping on house some political crap last night, and shes still here, cos the accom is cheap, and pretty much all the streets in san fran are full of bums.
Its aparently pretty vionlat (subject to spellin), that womans now talking bout people she wan't to bump off lol.
3 people were shot, before some dude shot himself in the street next to us, so were up for cab fares most of the time. Heres marketing for you:: we were @ some camera shop down in the bay who sold stamps and they retailed @ 70c US, althogh he was chargin $1 US. He claims its a lot better than going up to the post office, where its pretty dangerous and cos were 'foreiners' we have a higher chance of getting killed'. lol.
Ah fuck, its nearly 4am. Bah. *** Fire engines and cops are outside our hotel ***. Lol, last night, the cops were in here, checking out a rape case, so i came down to reception to get change (check out the gos) and I got to have a good chat to a cop (there were like 10-15 of them here) and he said the worst place to hang around in san franscisco were our street (Ellis St - remember it.!).
** Police and fire just left **, I dun know if i've already mentioned it, but the cops look like the police academy cops lol, i'm serious. I thought movie world on the gold cost was so very fake.
Important Point :: I can see how the culture here is percieved throught the shit we listened to in Canb .. Dre, snoop, enemim.. I've talked to heaps of people here bout them. Althought, What we see in australia is simply derived from the american culture here. Dont' look @ the shit on the tv shows n crap and assume, thats how it is, cos its not!
Bah. I dunno when i'll post again, cos i dun know whats hapening from here, cept were heading back to LA. (Its nice) and I think @ the moment, were goin to venice beach / the stip + mabe the six flag theme park (the person i'm traveling with aint too keen on theme parks, so i'll have to org something).
Cyas all later.
