Last day in San Francisco, I was walking the city one more time.

This is for you Edith, I found the machine. Is this what you mentioned?
The Cable Car, very popular in San Francisco
Lori’s Diner all day breakfast, sparkling red booths, rock n roll,and Coca-Cola, Elvis and Marilyn Monroe memorabilia.

Ghirardelli one of the most important brand of chocolates here.
Nice place to rest in the city
You know, each country has this kind of places in which you can buy "boludeces".

Sausalito - Tiburon - Mill Valley

Yesterday was the memento visit those three differents cities, one beside the other.

 Here some pictures from Sausalito, where you can find this kind of HouseBoats very strange:

In Mill Valley you can see a lot of trees and beautiful houses between them:

And finally in Tiburon huge mansions with views to the bay. I dont have pictures of them, but you know just mansions.

Yosemite National Park

Well, finally I have decided to visit the National Park, was a long trip but it was worth it.

It is impossible to see in a picture what you see in person, is for that reason that I made some small videos.

In some of them I said some words in spanish, but don't worry nothing important.

The trip was long, I stopped to eat something in Subway, basically is the same that we have in Argentina - luckily knew how to buy - in this kind of Stores, people don't have time.

The National Park is really huge, you never get tired of seeing the nature.

These are the first steps in the Park, this is my car, it is very nice, although I took several hours to understand how to close the doors.

Here a vídeo entering the park:

Let me say, that the max speed in the routes are low, and as happens in Argentina nobody respects them.

I was in the highway with the cruise speed fixed with the max allowed, and all the traffic passing over me.

55 mph in a highway with 4 lanes is ridiculous, just my impression!.

Inside the Park, this is a beautiful view:

Wine Country – Napa Valley

Last Sunday we were exploring Napa Valley and the wine path.

We taste some wines in a beautiful winery (I dont remember the name), and then we went to visit the  Castello di Amorosa

Finally we finished the day in a excelente restaurante, this time I ate pork accompanied by potato gnocchi (basically Ñoquis).

Thanks at all for the good moment.

Walking for Benicia

Benicia is a waterside city in Solano County, California, United States, 45 minutes by car from San Francisco.

Today I had the opportunity to explore that beautiful city before I meet with Craig and his family to visit the Wine Country in Napa Valley.

Here some pictures of Benicia:

Tomorrow it is Veterans Day, this is because flags in the park.

In the middle of the main street in the town, I found with this particular park in which "apparently" people of the city has a space to harvest.

It is strange, does it?, take a look at the message:

Walking to the Golden Gate

I have done a long hike from the Palace of fine Art to the Golden Gate, I´m not sure how many kilometers, but it took me 2 hours more less, I have taken some pictures:

This is the forte under the bridge

San Francisco National Cemetery

I have visited the Cemetery in San Francisco.

There is a part in it, in which you can see a lot of gravesites for the army, basically soldiers death in combat.

This part of the cementey is delimited by flags

The cemetery is being renovated, it is interesting the message in the following picture asking for patient to the people and saying that they will be use GPS to keep the grave sites in the same position.
