Descriptive Essay: The City Of San Francisco

Improved Essays
Imagine a seven-by-seven-mile metropolis, surrounded by several neighborhoods filled with homes with unique design in Presidio Heights or Nob Hill, tall office buildings in the Financial District, and amazing views of San Francisco and the Bay from the Golden Gate Bridge or Twin Peaks. As many people view San Francisco as one of the most expensive and difficult cities to live in, I like to think of it as my home away from home. It is a city of seekers and adventurers. I am a city girl and I love everything about what an urban environment can offer me. I got lost within the crowds, found small hidden spots, interacted with others around me and I was able to forget about reality at those times. In the midst of all the stress from school and work, I remind myself of the relaxed atmosphere I felt in San Francisco through the different people I encountered, beautiful sceneries and historic architecture, and delicious wide range of food.

For example, we ran into a girl in a coffee shop. She was an Asian girl, average height, and had short brown hair. She started to talk to us and asked us if we were from the city and told us some nice spots that we could go to for photographs. Since she was a photographer, she knew where the good spots were in the city because my sister and I have gone to San Francisco several times before and I just did not know any new places to go to. Overall, she was extremely nice to us and introduced us to new parts of the city that we didn’t know of in the past because we would just go to the tourist locations that our parents would take us to before. We talked to her for quite a while and got to know one another, then me and my sister went off and explored the different locations that our new friend recommended us to go

    When the Zetas sold their calendars during a fall festival, the girls were ecstatic by how many people came to their booth to check out the “new and improved Zetas”. In “The Princess Effect”, Sarah Kendzior talks about how magazines play on the idea of giving women the superficial qualities and promoting gorgeous bodies, clothes, houses, and makeup. The magazines promote an ideal woman who does not exist in real life. This idea that in order to live a happy life, you need to look and act a certain way gives a false reality to women (Kendzior 205). In House Bunny, the directors sketched the same effect.…

    By this time it was around 11:30 and I noticed there were more people in the park than there had been when we arrived. We walked around Fantasyland for a while before deciding to go to the storybook boats. While in line for this ride I decided to interview Jessica and Olivia, the two people in line in front of us. I asked Jessica why she came to Disneyland and she said that she was in California for a work trip and that she thought it was the perfect opportunity to take her kids to the park since they love the characters so much. I then asked her what her favorite experience since arriving at the park was, since it was early in the day she hadn't done that much yet, but she did say that she, as well as her whole family really enjoyed Star Tours.…

    I personally witnessed a cultural exchange when my friend Rose and I were visiting the Kenyan tent at the World Bazaar. After purchasing a small token, Rose thanked the owner in Swahili. The elderly woman’s eyes lit up, as did those of her daughter who was sitting right next to her. From there, a new conversation bloomed on beauty of Swahili and the importance of learning new cultures. It was amazing to see two cultures colliding – that of my American friend Rose and that of Kenyan woman, whose name I do not know, all because of a simple thank you.…

    Most of the restaurant closed, so I just stroll along the street and try to get some food for a starving young man. I notice that over a far distance, a dim bulb of the street light cast a soft radiance over a signboard of a Izakaya, I gaze around the time-worn façade and step into the Izakaya.
