WELCOME TO THE PIER!

¡Buenas chicos!
Esta semana me encuentro en Tenerife trabajando en nuevos proyectos y estamos sin parar, pero no quería dejar de contaros con detenimiento la siguiente parada que hicimos en nuestro viaje por EEUU.
Hi guys!
This week I am in Tenerife working on new projects and we are going without stopping, but I did not want to stop telling you about the next stop we did on our US trip this summer.


¡Y así llegamos a San Francisco! Con muchísimas ganas de conocer una de las paradas con mayor encanto que conocimos.

And we arrived in San Francisco! With a lot of desire to know one of the most charming stops we met.

En cuanto aterrizamos en el aeropuerto de SFO procedente de nuestro soñado Nueva York, nos dirigimos a nuestro hotel situado justo al lado de Union Square, una ubicación bastante buena si os animáis a visitar esta ciudad, teniendo en cuenta que el transporte publico que mejor funciona es UBER. Además de contar con una flota considerable de conductores y vehículos, el servicio y el precio es inmejorable.

When we landed at SFO airport from our dream New York, we headed to our hotel next to Union Square, a perfect location if you are planning to visit this city, bearing in mind that the public transportation that works best is UBER. In addition to having a considerable fleet of drivers and vehicles, the service and price is unbeatable.

La primera tarde decidimos pasear por Chinatown hasta llegar al conocido Pier 39, donde paseamos por su muelle y disfrutamos de las vistas y de la naturaleza marina más salvaje con sus leones marinos, especie bastante famosa en toda la costa de California.

The first afternoon we decided to stroll through Chinatown to get to the well-known Pier 39, where we strolled along its pier and enjoyed the views and the wildest marine nature with its sea lions, a rather famous species all along the California coast.

Como la tarde se nos echó encima, decidimos cenar un autentico CHOWDER acompañado por unos aros de cebolla. Los chowders son una especie de pan relleno con una salsa de almejas blanca o rojas (a elegir) típicos de los puertos californianos. Debido a su tamaño, nosotros nos decantamos uno de salsa de almeja blanca ¡para compartir!

It was late, we decided to have an authentic CHOWDER with an onion rings. Chowders are a kind of bread stuffed with a sauce of white or red clams (to choose) typical of the Californian ports. Chowders are so big and I recommend them to share!

Al día siguiente, nos echamos a las calles para conocer el downtown de la ciudad. Comenzamos por el City Hall donde nos encontramos con diferentes parejas contrayendo matrimonio de forma simultánea pero ubicados en distintos puntos del edificio.

The next day, we took to the streets to know the downtown of the city. We start at the City Hall where we find different couples getting married simultaneously but located in different parts of the building.

Antes de la hora de la comida, estuvimos en la zona del Castro donde nos llamó mucho la atención la diversidad de culturas y estilos de vida que aquí conviven. Después de pasear por esta zona, nos tumbamos a tomar un poco el sol en el Dolores Park, antes de disfrutar de una rica comida en un restaurante Tailandés.
Before lunch time, we were in the Castro area where we were struck by the diversity of cultures and lifestyles that live here. After strolling through this area, we lie down to take a little sun in the Dolores Park, before enjoying a delicious meal in a Thai restaurant.

Para terminar el día, visitamos el Lincoln Park Stairs y China Beach, donde disfrutamos de unas vistas mágicas del Golden Gate al caer la tarde y ver cómo se perdía entre las nubes.

El tercer día en San Francisco lo comenzamos con una de las mejores experiencias en esta ciudad: cruzar el Golden Gate en bici hasta el pueblo pesquero de Sausalito.

Esta ruta en bicicleta la comenzamos en el Puerto y fuimos haciendo pequeñas paradas hasta llegar a nuestro destino final. Si bien es cierto que al principio no estábamos del todo convencido de realizar esta actividad, acabó conquistándonos completamente la experiencia que sin duda recomendamos al 100%.

This bike route started at the port and we made small stops until arriving at our final destination. While it is true that at first we were not entirely convinced to perform this activity, it ended up conquering us completely the experience that we certainly recommend to 100%.

En Sausalito llegamos a la hora de comer, y disfrutamos de una hamburguesa exquisita, recomendación de una guía turística cubana que conocimos en el recorrido. Esta hamburguesería se encuentra justo en frente del aparcamiento general de bicis. Es un local bastante pequeño con apenas dos mesas y ocho sillas, pero inconfundible.
In Sausalito we arrived at lunch time, and enjoyed an exquisite burger, recommendation of a Cuban tourist guide that we met on the tour. This hamburger is located right in front of the general bicycle parking lot. It's a pretty small place with just two tables and eight chairs, but unmistakable.

Nowadays the hublot replica uk is popular with a wide range of people including many celebrities. When these watches were first made replicas and copies were very hard to come by as they were difficult to imitate. Today it is quite to replica watches sale and with advanced technology available to anyone with fake rolex sale spotting these replicas has become a skill in itself. There are plenty of places on the web to find information about spotting fakes and how to avoid them. Some people however might consider a fake because as previously stated you can pick up a near perfect copy for a fraction of the price. The other alternative to buying a copy is to buy fake breitling sale. Again, these retail at lower amounts than the original price tag and have the benefit of being real. That is if you trust the buyer.
