It took us a little more than we bargain because of the early rush traffic, but we finally got into the northern point. We parked the SUV and we got into the Trolley to the Castro, which is a colorful and very historic place to visit in San Francisco. Probably you’ve seen it in the commercials to San Francisco, it is that subway looking wagon that is traveling in those rails over the hills of the city. It is open, so you can walk in and out really fast. Of course, we were all laughing cause they have signs to never get off until the wagon has stopped. But, if you look closely, the locals are totally a pro at this…one of my friends try to do the local thing, and almost got his face plastered in the floor, which we all were laughing.
Alejandra was in total photographic focus. I was mesmerized by her way of setting the shot and playing a little with the color palette. Plus, she remember that I love monochromatic pictures, and I could see her wicked look when she was doing it. Which, you know, if you’ve seen this woman and giving you that “look” it raises the adrenaline and heart beat as fast as the speed of light. She took awesome pictures of the surrounding buildings, and the city have a very awesome looking exterior, which adds to the historical vibe of the city…plus, the people were extremely friendly. We ended up meeting at the end of the Castro, which is a wonderful place to be…they have pastry shops and bakeries and restaurants that add its own personal touch to this incredibly city.
Since the whole gang loved the area and the surrounding we decided to eat around. As usual, we asked around…who knows which is the best place than the locals, right? And you know how we’ve found awesome places in our travel, today was not the exception. There was a local’s favorite called Mama’s Restaurant, which is located in the bohemian part of the city. At first we were “Italian! Awesome!”, then the joke was on us, it was a beautiful contemporary decorated bakery/coffee shop. They have menus for Breakfast, which the locals say is one of the best, and they have one for lunch as well. Immediately we went to the menu, and it was pretty neat from the waiter that we ask about their awesome pancakes, and we were really amazed that we said that we were going to have breakfast tomorrow! We all pick different plates from the menu. I got the chicken Caesar salad, and Miss Hotness got the Vegetable Quiche, which was her way to keep with healthy living!
At the end of the wonderful meal and evening, and listening to the amazing performers, we went to watch the beautiful and amazing Golden Gate…it was totally illuminated and had that distinctive paint job that has made this amazing bridge as one of the most beautiful in the entire world. As we were sitting on a bench overlooking this amazing engineering marvel, Alejandra and I started talking about ourselves and how we were missing each other. It felt as if time did not go by…we were flirting and more so in love with each other. It was a different feeling than before. It was more mature, and we looked into each other’s eyes and we said at the same time “I love you”, which we laugh for how corny that was. We told each other that we’ll go slow and making sure that what we do is in the interest of the other.
When we arrived to the hotel the guys were asking us how it was, and we told them a bit of what the evening was like. In private the guys were asking me if things were heading toward a date at the altar, but I told them that was in the future, but right now we wanted to make sure to erase what made us felt apart and we were looking at the future more brightly.
