San Francisco

San Francisco was really freezing city! Could you imagine? 10°C!!! One hour by car and you are in Santa Cruz where the temperature is 25°C higher! Because it's situated in the Bay Area! CRAZY!
The GOLDEN GATE is one of the longest bridge in US! Near this Bridge you can easly see Alcatraz island! The Pacific Ocean is completely cold and it's really windy during summer! One of the most known street is Lombard Street It's the roadway which has eight sharp turns!!! It was necessary to reduce the hill's natural 27% grade, which was too steep for most vehicles to climb and a serious hazard to pedestrians In this way it's only 16-degree incline (more reasonable)!
