The colorful city of San Francisco

The CastroThe CastroThe Castro District in San Francisco is one of the first gay neigbourhood in the United States and still remains an iconic and most prominent symbols of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) activism and events in the world.

The rainbow flag comprising of six LGBT pride colors, is a symbol of the San Francisco gay freedom celebration. These pride colors are smeared everywhere in The Castro - houses, restaurants, shops, walls and even the pedestrian crossings.

If you are in the San Francisco for a week or more and really want to experience the city at leisure forget cars and take any of the public transit services (BART, MUNI), or better rent a bike, or even better walk!

There is nothing like walking the streets of San Francisco untethered and unrushed, soaking in the vibrance and liveliness of the colorful city. I had the luxury of staying in the city for more than two weeks and of all the touristy things I did, walking gave me the most unadulterated experience. 

I must have walked more than 50 miles on the streets of San Francsico in my two visits there so far. I wish I had my camera lugging around in each of those miles, but for my laziness. However, my mobile did more than a handy job of filling in the void on many occasions.
