California, here we are! We were really excited to arrive in San Francisco, with it's famous hills, charming cable cars, and of course the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge. Here are some the sights we saw:
For a guide book, we consulted Miroslav Sasek's beautifully illustrated San Francisco, which we all read together. We were especially impressed by the pictures of the zoo and of San Fran's iconic Chinatown.

Another thing we were looking forward to in San Francisco was the food. There are so many excellent restaurants there and such a wide diversity of cuisines.

On Wednesday we wrote little skits centered around food. Here we are looking at all the foods:

A skit in which a customer orders a hamburger with all the toppings:
Thursday's class unwittingly wore matching outfits for our San Francisco tour. They send their love though!

Next week we leave the foggy shores of Northern California and head down to Hollywood. See you in the Hills!
