San Francisco (like Paris) is beyond words and cliches.
It sometimes feels impossible to come up with something adequate to describe a town like this
and most of it has all been said at vt already...
If there is a soundtrack of the City playing in my head, it is usually the first 8 bars of Spencer Dryden drums:
'Elle conduit des voitures drôles'
Say "hi" or honk if like me
you've got it bad for San Francisco.
Things are changing in the City -
and not for the better (some food for thought)
Thanks to everyone at VT and everywhere else for all their great SF pages & tips
that I enjoy every day, & for sharing so the rest of us
can stand on your shoulders to get such a great look at your incredible city.
Special gratitude for inspiration to:
jessicadf .... jadf: all the best to you & yours.

Paris & NYC may be somewhat older, bigger, come on a little stronger
or be a tad more extreme / overwhelming:
