Lost My Heart in San Francisco

Well - it's a pretty windy day here in Lee Vining.  I'm sat on a wind swept veranda in the Sierra Nevada, having almost lost the will to live after several cups of coffee and multiple failed internet connections.  So here's a brief overview of what we've been up to:

Thursday 19th - Saturday 21st August.  San Franscisco
Epic day of sight seeing.  Hanging of the sides of cable cars (like old fashioned trams, but connected to a cable moving under the road), views of the painted houses, a be-fogged bridge and lone Alcatraz, and sleeping sealions.  I dragged Simon to SF MOMA under protest, but he was reconciled to modern art by the remains of an aid-climbing performance art piece.

Saturday, we went to collect our Minibago - the campervan we've hired for this trip.
The Dark Star!
After a disappointing trip to REI (Sports Shop) we had to scrap our itinerary as our plans were foiled by a lack of guide books, so we decided to head to Yosemite and hope for the best.
