highlights from san fran.

happy friday! on my recent trip to san fran for work, i was able to squeeze in a day (well more like 18 hours, give or take) to explore the city. though i didn't get to see it all, or even most of everything san fran had to offer i did manage to navigate the muni, visit the deYoung  museum for a private showing of the picaso exhibit (which is temporarily being housed there while its home in paris is be renovated) take in the shops at pier 39 and even took a short boat ride over to alcatraz. here is a glimpse of some of my trip highlights. enjoy!
