DRIFTING down Lombard Street in San Francisco

by on Dec.08, 2009, under California

For my last weekend in California I rented a car. So we went up to San Francisco to check out the place one more time. I haven’t seen the golden gate bridge yet so i got to see that. PRETTY AMAZING STUFF!

Another highlight of this trip is drifting down Lombard Street, Haha, i lie. No ones drifting down THIS street. Even if it is the “crookedest street in the world”. But it was still a pretty good experience. We actually drove down TWICE, because we didn’t have the first time on video. So the youtube link you see below is actually our second drive down. It was pretty easy to drive down this street, we were in a corolla so the turning radius was quite small. It’ll be quite hard to drive a larger car, say a hummer, down this street. We even played some 得飄 得飄 music which seemed to be appropriate.

So heres the “travel video blog on youtube by akok” – Jethro Ma

So after some research on Wikipedia, the reason why they made this street crooked here is because the hill was too steep to make a road straight. Not very stupid actually (unlike what i said in the video).

After that, the rain really started coming down, but we still trekked to Union Square Park where they have a giant Christmas tree set up:
