Day 13 San Francisco here I am! What an exotic city. So many different cultures all bonded into one city. How very exciting. Today, I am going to the Japanese Tea Garden, located in the Golden Gate Park. The garden is known as the Wet Walking garden, although it does have a dry garden, also called a Zen garden. It was first developed as the Japanese Village, and much of the original garden is gone, there is still plenty to see. The Japanese Tea Garden is of such importance to the Japanese population of California because in the Japanese culture a garden is considered one of the highest forms of art. I can definitely see why everyone treasures this garden so much. It is so relaxing and such a serene environment, completely taking you away from the hustle and bustle of city life. It was very enjoyable. My second and concluding stop was the famous Golden Gate Bridge. It took more than four years to build, and cost $35 million. There is also a 4,200 foot long main suspension span, along with two towers of 746 feet tall, making them 191 feet taller than the Washington Monument. The bridge was designed with an art decho theme in mind. To facts I did not know were that the Golden Gate Bridge has always been painted orange, and that it crosses the Golden Gate strait. Now that I have been to the bridge, I am going to tell everyone that is considering going there, that it is unquestionably a worth-while trip. At this point, I know why everyone loves the city of San Francisco, because I sure do!
