First ever and second trip to SF


Hey guys, I was away from home for the last year and I was off this board.
In the mean time I went to San Francisco twice.

As some of you know, I live in Brazil and I have been to USA a couple of times before, but never to SF. My first trip to the northern california was in 06. I stayed at a golf city called Angels Camp, about 3-4h from SF. Nothing to do there really besides frying in the !@#$ hot sun. So I rented a car and drove to San Francisco. Stayed there 2 days and 1 night and watched 2 Giants games.

It was a great experience. I got to see the bridge, AT&T, the cable cars... you know the basic things you can do in 2 days.

When I left SF I was really upset, I needed more time there. So I visited SF again in 2007. This time around stayed there for 7 days.
If 06 was great, 07 was amazing. I watched 2 Dodgers @ Giants games, I watched a game-tying grand slam in the bot 9th by Randy Winn...
I bought a Go San Francisco card which gave me access to a lot of places and discount on others. Great deal. With that card I did a tour within AT&T, got to see the clubhouse, went to the suites...

There was a quake while I was sleeping in 07. My good ol dad woke up and said he felt the ground shaking. The day before I drove by the Safeway that had the window broken. Fortunately no wounded or dead people, it was something like a 4.2 quake.

I ate at the Momo's near AT&T, San Franciscan (in the Fisherman's Wharf)... visited a wine gallery, went to pier 31, rent a bike and rode to the golden gate bridge.

Without further ado I made a video with the '06 pictures. Unfortunately my HDD blew up and I lost most of the '07 pictures. The ones I have are the ones saved on my PS3, so I have to copy them from the ps3 first.

Hope you guys enjoy the video and can't wait to come back:
