"Fade Out No.02" template album


San Francisco was so like Wellington it was almost disconcerting - except for the map which the hotel clerk made sure we had before we left to go exploring. He carefully marked on it the “no go areas” which the hotel bordered. We made the mistake of cutting across a corner of the marked blocks the next day to get back to the hotel. It was frankly terrifying. Haight-Ashbury was interesting too - just stopping to wait for a cross single found us fending off offers of “something for a buzz”, and every patch of grass housed an encampment of hippies looking as if the 1970s had never ended. We walked all over, exploring Chinatown and taking the cable cars across town.
