San Francisco Trip Part 1

We headed to Berkeley for the first part of our SF trip for my friend's graduation. It was my first time meeting an online friend! We've been penpals for around seven years so I was really excited to finally meet her.

We stayed in a cute little inn nearby the campus.

J took Tare and me around the Berkeley campus and it was quite beautiful. It was like a school within a forest!

We went to the top of Sather Tower.

We also went to the UC Botanical Garden. It was a lot of walking in inappropriate shoes which I paid for at the end of the day.

I got some recommendations from another friend who attended Berkeley to go to La Med for dinner and Ici for dessert. Great food!
