The hippie in me

san-francisco-85

Alors, San francisco ?

Et bien depuis des années, je peux dire que c’était mon rêve ultime ! Je sentais le cœur de la ville battre à travers les chansons folk que j’écoutais.

Maintenant que j’ai visité, je peux dire que c’est exactement comme je l’avais imaginé.

– L’esprit hippie est toujours présent dans le célèbre quartier de Haight Ashbury. J’ai passé la majorité du temps là bas, il y a pleins de boutiques sympa, dont beaucoup des friperies.

– Il fait horriblement froid là bas, en tout cas en été.

– Castro et Mission sont les deux autres quartiers que j’ai le plus aimé.

– Comme je m’y attendais, le Golden Gate est splendide.

Allez c’est parti pour la séance diapo, à l’occasion j’avais enfilé ma tenue de hippie ;-)

So, what about san Francisco ?

Well, since many years, it was my ultimate dream ! I was feeling the town’s heart beat through the folk songs I was listening.

Now that I visited, I can say it’s all like I imagined.

– The hippie spirit is still living in the famous area of Haight Ashbury. I spent most of my time there, there’s a lot of nice second hand shops.

–  It’s freaking chilly out there, at least during summer. ( San Franciscooold ! )

– Castro and Mission are the two other places I loved the most.

– Just like I expected, the golden gate is gorgeous.

So now let the pictures talk for themselves, and my hippie outfit as well !

I really loved the gate surrounded with all this fog, even if I couldn’t see it entirely:

 » What is that ?!  »  right ? It’s one of the room in the Hotel I stayed. It’s called the Red Victorian, and it’s pretty unusual. Every room is different, and decoraded a different way … a hippie way of course! It was a lot of fun to visit the whole house and take some souvenirs pictures:

Quelques photos prises lors de ma dernière journée à New York.

J’ai parcouru une bonne moitié de Manhattan à vélo, et ce nouveau petit short en satin  associé à un simple t-shirt constituaient la combinaison idéale pour affronter la grande chaleur.

Et de nouvelles chaussures aussi ! trouvées dans une boutique vintage sur bedford street ( et oui je fait du vélo à talon ).

Allez je vous laisse. Prochaine escale: San Francisco !

Just a few pictures taken on my last day in new York.

I’ve been visiting most of manhatan by bike, and these new satin shorts with a simple t-shirt were the perfect combination on that very hot day.

And some new shoes too ! Found vintage store on Bedford street ( and yes, I can ride a bike with heels.)

See you soon then, next move: San Francisco !
