and i can comfirm she didnt wear a flower in her hair…. thats right we’ve arrived in San Fransciso and the bay area.
A long days travelling saw us arrive in san fran and a few days at the hotel whitcomb which is best described as faded elegance, old would be another way of saving it 😉 but it was fine. Little room to swing a cat but acceptable. Having been awake 24 hours we had a little walk around just to get moving and check out the place and thats when it got a bit scetchy…..
Now i’d read reviews and it said mental health issues and homelessness was an issue, but jesus this was a whole new level of awkwardness. To quote dave “america what are you doing” its hard to see, and as a foreigner had to understand when you see people living out of a wheelchair, or a carrying a matress around. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve got issues in the UK but wow just wow.
So in short avoid the market street area and other parts of town. Indeed walking home on the last night, a young local was on her phone talking to some one to meet up and she said “walking towards you now just getting to the scetchy bit”
Lastly, mental health is no joking matter, and it was sad to see so many people in pain and needing help, but nothing, so back to dave “what the f**k are you doing america.
