I arrive at Eric's - my sweet pad upon landing from Europe - to a community of circus performers & visual arts artists. A perfect spot to get into the mood of Oakland and San Fran. After the first weekend spent in coma due to the time difference, I emerge on Monday ready to get myself a bike!
I find one pretty easily at the local Bike Kitchen and spend the week fine-tuning it.
On Wednesday, I move to Jeremy's, who's part of the WarmShowers community of touring cyclists. Roaming around the city is much easier from his centrally located flat and I get to explore the town with my newfound best-friend Mary.
San Francisco is beautiful, unexpected, vibrant and colourful. Just like I had imagined it.
Chilling out until May, 14th and then OFF I go!!
