While spending my last week in America with Laura in Indiana, Arto arrived in Chicago to begin his new studies.  Seeing as Laura and Arto missed each other last time she was in Egypt, and this would be Arto’s first time living in a foreign country, we felt a road trip was in order.  Unfortunately there aren’t many pictures, but I hope you can enjoy the ones that I did manage to snap.

Jolly old San Francisco

In order to celebrate Laura’s upcoming birthday, I thought she’d enjoy a nice day trip to that old city on the bay, you guessed it, San Francisco.  I’m sure the title of the post didn’t clue you in or anything…

I took her to see the joy and craziness of Fisherman’s Wharf, where we could gaze at the bay, peruse the shops (including a pirate store), and enjoy some clam chowder with genuine San Franciscan sourdough bread.  Then we took a drive to see the Golden Gate Bridge and a spot I know in Pacific Heights where you can see a magnificent view of the city and a quite well endowed robot.  After that, I took her to the Palace of Fine Arts to take some pictures of the beautiful architecture and be like kids and play at the Exploratorium.  We got our fill of science and fun, so we decided it would be time to peruse the beautiful Japanese Tea Garden at Golden Gate Park, which was just beautiful.  And of course, no trip to San Francisco would be complete without a stroll through China Town with a nice Dim Sum dinner!  By this time it was getting quite late, so we concluded our trip with a visit to Ghirardelli Square for an (un)healthy quantity of chocolate for the pretty lady.

I hope you enjoy the plethora of pictures I posted from this trip. (more…)
