Clam Chowder at Fisherman Wharf

A must try when you are in San Francisco is the very famous Clam chowder at the Fisherman Wharf. Here is mine waiting with a cold, draft San Francisco anchor steam.

And here is me, getting ready for the attack…

And this is how the story ends…

Creamy, a little bit too creamy for my taste, but very good and I am glad I’ve tried it.

Weird sales, anyone?

Coming to the U.S. is a great opportunity  for shopping, not only the prices are good, but they also have great sales. You can find almost anything here, as long as you can pay for it.

This sale, on the other hand, is a little bit creepy. I wonder who is interested  in it. Any of you? I will pass, thank you.

Driving California

I always dreamed about driving along the U.S, cruising in my Buick Electra cabriolet, listening to Fleetwood Mac … well… things don’t always turn out the way we picture them…
Here I am, on the road from San Francisco to Santa Barbara, in my rental Hyundai whatever model, listening to some sort of mexican cumbia on a random radio station.
Well, well, you know, getting the best out of situations is quite my trademark. I adapt easily, so here I am blending in with the local (mexican) culture.
“A burrito to go, please! Make it vegetarian Jouseiiii”

The Countdown has Started!

In one week from now I’ll be driving up the coast from L.A to San Fransisco.

Only been in the States once before, 10 hours stop in Atlanta on my way to Buenos Aires. I rushed into town to see as much as possoble. My plan was to see the world’s biggest aquarium, the Coca Cola factory, and continue from there.
Well… that didn’t happen. The fish crazy Dave got mesmerized by the whalesharks, hammarheads, stingrays, spidercrabs………and had to rush back to the airport almost missing his flight.

And as much as I dislike the idea of animals in captitvity, I have to admit that giving children the possibility to be so close to a hammarhead shark might increase their understanding and respect for these beautiful animals.
