Stereotypes?

Everyone has an image of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz sitting menacingly out in the bay, areas such as the Castro and Haight, hills, big hills, cable cars and so on. A visit to the city will manage to confirm most of those images!

As a European, I thought San Francisco was the most liveable of the cities I'd been to in the States. It seems friendlier, it's not so huge that it's scary, public transport is excellent, which makes a car quite unnecessary.

So after over a week of constant driving, it was time to park the car and spend a few days travelling around on trams, buses and those famous cable cars before the long flight home.
