San Francisco: Market Street, UN Plaza, City Hall

On my last morning in San Francisco, I checked out of my hotel early then walked around Market Street until it was time to go to the airport.

San Francisco: Cable car to Fisherman’s Wharf, Ferry Building, Castro

At the end of the afternoon, I got out of my meeting and finally got to ride the cable car up and down Nob Hill to Fisherman’s Wharf. There, I took the cable car along the Embarcadero to the Ferry Building. I switched again for another cable car to the Mission District. I then walked to the Castro area.

San Francisco: Moscone Center, Cable cars, Nob Hill

For my second (and last) full day in San Francisco, I had to be in a meeting in the Financial District in the afternoon so I stayed close by. After breakfast, I went to the Moscone Center nearby. Then, I wanted to take the cable car at the Powell-Market station but there was a big line so I walked up Nob Hill instead, taking pictures of the cable cars along the way.
