10 things to see in San Fransisco

San Francisco, California, May 7th 2016. Located in the west coast in the so called “Bay area”, San Francisco is without any doubt a city to add into your “to visit list” in the US. Golden Gate Bridge, Cable Cars, Otter Seas are among the well-known icons not to be missed in this avant-garde city where the quality of life is probably one of the best in the country. High quality of life is unfortunately very appealing and results in very expensive rents – even higher than in New York  – and in an important number of homeless people.

I had the chance to have a VIP tour of the city by a colleague which enabled me to see many things in a very short time. In fact, the city is much more widespread than it seems, and very sloppybe prepared to walk (and to sore) !

San Francisco, Californie, 7 mai 2016. Située sur la côte Ouest dans la renommée  “Bay area”, San Francisco est sans aucun doute à ajouter à la liste des villes à visiter aux Etats-unis. Le Pont du Golden Gate, les “cables cars” – ou funiculaire, les otaries sur le port font partie des icônes à ne pas manquer dans cette ville avant-gardiste où la qualité de vie est l’une des meilleures du pays. Malheureusement,  cette qualité de vie convoitée résulte en une augmentation importante des loyers et un nombre de sans-abris tres élevé.

J’ai eu la chance d’avoir une visite VIP de la ville par un collègue qui m’a permis d’avoir un aperçu complet en un temps record. En fait, la ville est bien plus étendue qu’elle n’y paraît, et quelque peu pentue… préparez-vous à marcher (et à avoir des courbatures) !
