with our friend Dr Edward Dickinson cos he has a car, and it was sort of on the way from Telegraph Hill to Mission (sort of), but mostly cos it seemed like the right thing to do, to say we’d ‘done’ SF.
(It’s much slower than this in real time.)
Truth is it’s a bit of a con. It’s only the “world’s crookedest street” cos they’ve built chicanes all the way down, with nice civic planting. It’s not even the steepest street in the city, just the most articificially bendy.
Perhaps this would be more excting if you were from a fairly flat town?
Coming from Wellington NZ, I’m no stranger to genuinely steep narrow crooked streets (or bogus tourist attractions).
Anyway, always great to drive around a cool looking foreign city.
