I couldn't help but stop and take a picture of this spa, and wonder if the offer a special on happy endings. I was on a budget though, so I had to take a pass.
So instead I stopped a Vietnamese noodle joint for some nourishment. This bowl of vermicelli, BBQ pork, beef, prawns, and an egg roll was delicious! I could really eat this more often.
Jesse, the brewer at 21A, recommended Magnolia Brewpub as a must-stop, which is located in the Haight-Ashbury. First I had to make my way up some pretty steep hills though, which totally kicked my ass! What can I say, I'm not in that good of shape and not used to steep hills; we just don't have them in NYC. This photo really doesn't relate the steepness of the climb, since it was taken from the top where the hill levels out a bit more.
I had to go up a little higher to get some perspective, so I headed to the top of Buena Vista Park for a better view.
I was planning on hitting up some other stops, but after I got back to the hostel, ate some pasta, and laid down for a minute, jet-lag and the long day kicked in and I was sleeping like a small child.
