We left Monterey and drove over to San Francisco, famed for its liberalism and acceptance of…pretty much anything! We had been to San Francisco quite a few times before so this time we mostly drove around and soaked in the city’s environment. I loved this shot that my mother took of the SF City Hall- I think it represents so much of SF’s hills and trolley system.
We found the departments of Biochemistry and Psychology.
There was also this beautiful painting hanging in one of the rooms. Created in 1854 by an artist named Emanuel Leutze, it’s a painting of “Washington Rallying the Troops at Monmouth.” The battle at Monmouth was critical during the American revolution in June 1778. The American soldiers were in a state of defeat, until General Washington supposedly rode dramatically onto the scene, confronting the other General (Lee), dismissing him, and rallying the Americans to a counter-offensive.
