Monday, August 18, 2014. This week I returned back to San Jose to spend time with my high school friends. We had a bonfire together right when I came back to catch up with each other’s lives (a lot of crazy stuff has happened in mine lately omg), then on Monday we decided to take a day trip to San Francisco! One of our friends had just returned from Germany so this was one of the rare chances we had to all spend time together.
This was also a rare chance for me to dress up and look girly. I wore a dress, cardigan, sunhat, and long hair, AKA the shit that you would never see me wear on any given day. I dunno, sometimes it’s nice to not look like a a hobo for once.
We carpooled to the Bart station to take the train to San Fran. I wanted to take lots of selfies but all of my friends were braindead from the early morning. I think I got 3 hours of sleep, but the weird thing about my body (which is miraculously alive despite all of the bad shit I do to it like not sleep ever) is that I will be super awake in the morning and then crash like a trainwreck after I eat food.
I had no idea where we were going - the itinerary was decided upon by these two. Perks of going on trip with friends: you can just go wherever they go! Tbh they could take me to a dumpster and I’d still be satisfied. I am but a simple woman.
The first thing we did when we arrived was check out the city hall. I ended up taking a shit ton of pictures so now my post has to be split up into 2 parts. The building was way too pretty so I couldn’t resist snapping photos of everything.
Dat Renaissance architecture doe. Apparently the dome is the fifth largest in the world and is taller than the US Capitol.
The stairs went on for days. DAAAAAAYS. Good thing I wore my crocs instead of my heels. NO REGRETS FOR PRACTICALITY.
The details on the ceiling are so intricate and pretty that my camera phone doesn’t do it justice. We spotted a couple taking engagement photos around this area and I can certainly see why they would choose this balcony.
The museum room was super big but only had a few displays for some reason. My friend here is looking at the pylon of the Golden Gate Bridge. The second model is the City Hall dome (wow a city hall displaying a model of itself, that is some inception shit). The third photo is s just a model based on a house in SF except tweaked in a more Victorian style.
Unfortunately I am not sure what this giant head is LOL. And these are keys that have been presented to the mayor. Ok real talk, when would you need a key that huge? What show-offs.
We spent a chunk of time in this building (there was even a dungeon-looking room, but too bad there wasn’t anything inside) before we went out for lunch and other food adventures. In Part 2 I’ll talk about all the food shops we visited and tasted. Sorry to say, but I’m actually more interested in the food portion of the trip than the architecture and museum models. I am not classy enough, just give me food please! xx
