Lombard Street

Second stop was a VERY steep walk up the famous Lombard street. Cars often wait hours just to be able to drive down this steep and curvy street (its got 8 hairpin turns!) And it must be some weird lighting, because my arms are NOT that skinny!

According to Wikipedia:
Lombard Street is best known for the one-way section on Russian Hill between Hyde and Leavenworth Streets, in which the roadway has eight sharp turns (or switchbacks) that have earned the street the distinction of being the crookedest (most winding) street in the world. 
Man, I swear I'm in good shape, but DAMN that was a STEEP hill! I totally felt this sign below, "Eat Shit and Die". Perhaps it was a parody of what you eat makes you feel like shit? Ooorrrrr, it was just saying to eat shit and die bitch.

 Anyways, here is the street!

Well, the view from the top was really nice!!
