What’s the worst and stupidest thing a first time tourist in San Francisco USA would do? That would be… not seeing the Golden Gate Bridge and shoot photos of it. I apparently is not that person. I saw, I touched, I smelled (and even tasted it) and had uncountable selfies!
I actually went and see the Golden Gate Bridge twice. One during a sunny afternoon and second was at an early evening when the sun is about to set. I went twice just to confirm and re-assure myself that the first red orange bridge I saw was indeed the freaking Golden Gate Bridge! Hahaha!
I love the bridge. It’s elegant and mild from afar but absolutely robust and mighty when you got to step on it. And as I was walking along the sidewalk, I kept on pinching myself to validate that I am not dreaming and that I really am stepping on one of the Wonders of Modern World.
And when I reached the mid-part of the bridge, I tried looking down at the frigid water of the San Francisco Bay. All I can utter was, “This freakin’ b!@#ch is high!” After seeing the bridge twice and marvel at the beauty and strength it possesses, I smiled and proudly told myself that I indeed is one lucky dude!
Ang taas ng pota!
