My American Experience...

Highs: Seeing my friends; views of the San Francisco skyline; seeing the new things that have been
built in San Francisco; having absolutely no problems adapting; being reunited with Yummy Yogurt.

Lows: Feeling like the last 9 months of my life was some sort of dream; not having enough time to
see all of the different places I wanted to; having to depend on others to drive me around since I don't
have a car.

Best Moment: Walking around San Francisco and being able to say to myself 'This is truly one of
the most incredible cities in the world.

Sounds: Cable car tracks.

Sights: Hillsborough; Burlingame; San Mateo; Golden Gate Bridge (from afar); Alcatraz (from afar);
the Marina; downtown San Francisco; the Bernstein office in San Francisco.

Tastes: Salad at Pluto's; a seafood stew at Mamacita; Asian chicken salad at Copenhagen; my
favorite dark chocolate covered raspberry marshmallows from Aida's; some chocolate from Cocoa
Bella; the food heaven that is Bristol Farms; a chai latte from The Coffee Bean; frozen yogurt from
Yummy Yogurt; a drunk indulgence of an old-fashioned glazed donut.

Purchases: All new clothes from Old Navy for the next part of my trip.

Fun Food Finds: My favorite green papaya salad is available at 'Out the Door'; a 'Beard Papa';
the seafood bar at Bristol Farms; new types of cereals and granola bars (at the grocery stores).
