San Francisco: Market Street, Ferry Building, Chinatown, Coit Tower, Pier 39

A couple of months ago, I had to be in San Francisco for a few days. On my first full day, I went for a walk: Starting in the morning from my hotel near Union Square, I walked down Market Street to the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero. I then went through Chinatown on my way up Telegraph Hill to the Coit Tower and its observatory. After the Tower, I walked down the other side of the hill to Pier 39. At that point, I boarded a boat to have a closer look at the Golden Gate Bridge.
