Hope you are all well. We have been looking for somewhere to put up some pictures but can't find anywhere :( Will keep trying. San Francisco is a very different city to LA. We stayed in a hostel for 2 nights in the city centre but the area was a bit dodgy! It wasn't really safe to walk around especially at night and the people at reception advise you to get taxis and not to carry money so we decided to move up to Fisherman's Wharf. It's a harbour a bit like a seaside town but a much better area - full of those big San Francisco victorian manors so much nicer. There is a sea lion colony on some platforms by one of the piers and they are great fun to watch! They are huge!
We went on a bay cruise this morning and went under Golden Gate bridge and around Alcatraz which was interesting but very windy! It's actually pretty cold here so have completely lost any tan we got in Austarlia and Fiji now! But the food is definately better than Fiji - although quite burger and chipped out now!
Universal studios was fun - we saw Shrek in 4D, went Back to the Future, got Terminated, went to Jurrasic Park and saw the Mummy return which was good. Joe is busy telling me to add that I made him go in the haunted house on his own - and apparently is was very scary! AAAARRRRGH! Precisely why I didn't go in! lol!
We also did an LA city tour and saw loads of celebrity homes in Hollywood - very touristy! We saw the Osbornes, Mick Jagger's, Angela Lainsbury, Courtney Cox, Tom Cruise and loads of others - some people have too much money! We also saw Mrs Arnold Schwarzenneger driving near Britney's house - what a claim to fame! lol!
Anyway, better go back out and brave the cold but will write again soon. Going to go to Golden Gate park for a picnic tomorrow - so fingers crossed the weather is nice!
Take care, love Joe and Em xx
P.S. Again, the picture is of Wellington and the site says we are in San Francisco, Fiji but for some reason we can't make it see that we are in the US! lol!
