I continued my walking tour of the city today and made my way up to the top of Lombard street, where it crosses Hyde, then back around to Columbus Avenue, taking photos along the way.

Actually, more like a scenic blistering walk. I had some pain in my feet after all this walking today.

Directly behind where I took this photo is Cobb's Comedy Club. They often have a major comedian playing there.

I saw these in the city from time to time. I never figured out where you could rent them or how much they cost. They looked pretty convenient though.

Note these aren't Porsches, Lamborghinis. I wonder if the residents in this block will ever start charging money to drive down this stretch of road. Drive it now while its still free!

Somewhere at the bottom of the hill is the Buena Vista. Good place to warm up with an Irish Coffee or two.
