Coming down the hill

I'm sorry I've been away from the blogs for a while. It's been very hard to find the time to do blog posts and visit blogs lately because I've been spending (almost) all my free time showing a visitor from out-of-town around my beloved City by the Bay.

On the plus side, though, this has given me the opportunity to walk around the City and stock up on new photos, which will end up on the blog eventually. ;)

This was us barreling down California Street in a Cable Car, the day we met up with Mme. Benault and Katiefornia.

Would you like a better look at the Cable Car? or the visitor, maybe? a little of both? I'm sure this could be arranged. ;)

Here is the cable car (not my best shot I know, but it's a cable car)

and here is the hill... you do the math!

Ah, San Francisco et ses rues qui montent et qui descendent, ses tamways nommés Désir. Et sa baie et son Golden Gate Bridge. J'aimerai bien visité cette ville.
Tu serais un bon guide.
Alors comme cela tu as rencontré Mme Benault....

Now that just might be a little scary.

Nice; especially the first hanging on and car framed in the window, and the last. Makes me want to get on board with my cam! But it always seems so crowded...

Claude: Le tram nommé désir est a New Orleans, je crois, non? Oui, j'ai recontré Mme Benault qui est super sympa! :)

Patty: It's not as scary as it looks actually. The cable cars are hooked up underground so they can't really run away free down the hills, and as strange as it may seem, there are no accidents, no reports of people falling off.

Brad: thats true, and it sure was that day, but lately (this week, because it's been cold?) the California St. line is pretty empty in the morning.

Having heard the clanging of cable-car bells throughout my television-watching youth I would believe that they are all named...

It looks like you are having fun behaving like a tourist in your own town.

«Louis» wants to know if the passenger on the front left, second one in was asking "Do these jeans make my butt look big?"
