Family from Austria

Hello there my lovelies,

So my Aunt and cousins from Austria are here and I was in San Francisco with them all day yesterday and the night before.

We stayed in Park hotel on Sutter Street. The hotel is old, and I felt like I was in the Titanic. The elevator was something else. It had a manual switch to go to the next floors, and you had to pull a gate of bars to close the door. I don't really know how to describe it, but think about the elevator in Titanic. It was like that.

There were 5 of us in a 2 bedroom space, so I shared the bed with my other 2 cousins. I slept pretty well.

Yesterday we got up early and spent all day walking. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. I don't think it could have been any more perfect. We left the hotel from Sutter Street, walked through China Town to Lombard Street, down to Ghiradelli Square to have a huge ice cream, down near the beach, across a few neighborhoods to the Exploratorium, and from there all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge. We walked across half of the bridge. Then we walked all the way back to the hotel, minus a few blocks. We broke down and took the bus for the last few blocks because we were simply too damn tired.

I had a really good time. I took so many pictures. I felt like such a tourist. I loathe driving and parking there, so I took Bart, and didn't have to worry about it.

Anywho, that is all for now. It is nice having my family here. I can't wait to go visit them in Austria again. The next time I go, I will also make a small trip to Amsterdam.

I wish my family was nice and we all got along. Sometimes I feel like an orphan. LOL... But who cares; right?! I am glad you had some good times with your family. Five people in a two bedroom is not bad. I knew a family who slept 13 to a full sized bed. Now that's a challenge. ha ha... Forever Friends, Win =.)
