But as I walked through these streets, I couldn't help but stop every few yards to take snapshots of the buildings, so alive with un-faked creativity. This city breathes decadence with an epicurean flair. In culture, sport, intellectualism and diversity it lives freely.


The only other city I've ever been in that I felt had a heart that beat on its own and lungs that breathe of their own free will was Seville, Spain.

Surely there are others, but San Francisco pulsates; its unabashed passion for all things beautiful is unparalleled.

Indeed, the house looks unusual and, I am pretty sure, it hides many secrets:)

I've never been, but I love those old row houses decorated like the painted ladies that they are. Gorgeous!

I feel that way about Chicago and San Francisco is on my bucket list of places to visit. I would love to climb those stairs and go inside that house.

New Orleans does that for me just as much as SF. That pulse is so exciting.
