Ok so we have reached departure day, yet again! and we really are sad to leave San Francisco. Its been the best stop by far, we have met loads of cool people and had really good fun.
Even spent the day apart yesterday! Here is what we did
Vikki: Spent a perfect day wandering around all the department stores on my own, reading books in the park, eating bagels and generally being lazy!
Em: Went to the first ever american 'love parade' with a load of people from the hostel. A mental street parade with naked people on floats followed by a dance festival by the harbour.
how typical is that of the difference between the two of us????
but both of us are very safe and happy and promise to extend this entry when we get to LA with full details.
about to get on the coach (7 hours and em is hung over, bless her!), no flying for us any more we are proper travellers now!
speak to you all soon
RIGHT JUST A LITTLE EDIT -THE LOVE PARADE I WENT TO WAS A MASSIVE DANCE FESTIVAL -THEY HOLD IT IN BERLIN EVERY YEAR AND ITS SO MUCH FUN -IT WAS THE FIRST ONE THY'D HAD IN THE STATES, I WENT WITH A LOAD OF PEOPLE FROM OUR HOSTEL -WE WALKED ALONG WITH ALL THE WEIRD AND WONDERFUL FLOATS THROUGH THE STREETS (THE AMERICANS REALLY DONT GET THE IDEA OF A PARADE THROUGH THE STREETS THOUGH AS THEY KEEP A LOAD OF THE ROADS OPEN..WE'D BE WALKING ALONG THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN A GIANT POLICEMAN WOULD BE GRABBING YOU SHOUTING THAT YOU WERE STOOD STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FREEWAY...YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THEY'D HAVE HEARD OF DIVERSIONS???!!!!) SO JUST TO EXPLAIN VIKKI'S 'NAKED MEN' THING....WE WERE STOOD IN ONE OF THE BARS,WATCHING THE PARADE WHILST ENJOYING A CHEEKY PINT WHEN KATE (ONE OF THE LOVELY GIRLS WE'VE MET SAID THAT SHE THOUGHT SHE COULD SEE NAKEDNESS IN THE DISTANCE...WE ALL LOOK AROUND AND SURE ENOUGH THERE ARE 2 BODIES COMING TOWARDS US..AS THEY GET A LITTLE CLOSER WE QUICKLY REALISE ITS 2 MALE PENSIONERS SKIPPING THROUGH THE PARADE LIKE A COUPLE OF NUTS (SORRY BAD PUN!!!) -WE DIDNT HAVE TIME TO DIVERT OUR EYES AND SO WE WERE ALL BLINDED BY THE SIGHT!!! -WHAT ELSE COULD WE DO THAT TO GET COMPLETELY HAMMERED TO TRY AND FORGET THE EXPERIENCE!!!!!
