Our 36 hours in San Francisco started badly when the hotel we’d booked had given our room to someone else, with no apology and no assistance in finding another. It was late evening and our body clocks told us it was about 6am, so we weren’t impressed. I managed to find another hotel which we walked to – it wasn’t terribly salubrious but it offered us a place to sleep for two nights.
Next morning we took an Uber to Mama’s on Washington Square. There was a bit of a queue, as expected. but we were there early enough that it wasn’t too long a wait – about 30 minutes for us, but those who arrived later were waiting much longer.
We ran out of energy in the late afternoon, and though there was more we could have done, we were still very tired from the journey from the UK, and so retired for a quiet evening, conscious that we had a fairly early start in the morning to get to Emeryville.
