Beauties in the Bay

Thursday, January 9, 2014

Why have we not visited sooner? Michael & my two sisters decided to meet-up in San Francisco for Christmas. My aunt Ginger & uncle Wayne live in Berkeley, perfectly positioned on a quant hill across from the historical Claremont Hotel. I spent about 10 days traveling through Berkeley, Oakland & San Francisco with new friends and cousins. I might have to break this into ten posts!, but here are a few of my favorite spots. Let's start with SF:


The de Young Musuem  perfectly nestled in the Golden Gate Park this architecturally impressive museum showcases priceless collections of American art from the 17th through the 20th centuries, textile arts, and art of Africa, Oceania and the Americas. Michael and I toured the David Hockney exhibition - & I was blown away by the work, and the museum's efforts to encourage visitors to share their experience and excitement using hash-tags on social media check it! ..found using #davidhockney

now GRUB: I highly recommend Dosa in Valenca. Unfortunately, my phone died right as we got to the restaurant, so I will have to scour the net to impress you with their drool worthy plates, get a reservation because they fill up pretty damn quick! #YUM
Above: Chile Bhaji  Also, you must order the bhatura with any meal! It is sweet, fried and chewy- perfect to dip in any dish. 

Now the Mission district, do a little shopping!! 
Do not miss Laku on Valencia, designer Yaeko Yamashita began her career as a fashion designer in Asia, then moved her shop from New York to San Francisco. Every item in the shop is handmade: using both vintage and natural fabrics such as silk, cotton, velvet organdy and brocade. It's simply lovely! 
   
that's all for now !! xoxo- C
