Travel diary on Aug 27, 2012

I went to school serves to make foreign students improve their English conversation skills for free. But, one of the girls escaped from the school because of her no self-confidence. As her estimation, the lecture was too difficult for me to catch up with. For example, a teacher distributed handouts including long sentences, and I was required to read and answer the questions about the sentences. Because I couldn't afford to read them within given time, I asked the neighboring man the answers.
So, I won't take the class forever.

After that, I went to Van Ness station to meet one boy and three girls, all of which are Japanese.
At appointed time, I and three girls came. But, the man didn't come because he lost his way.
So, we gave up meeting him and headed for a house we were invited.
At the house, a Japanese woman cooked dinner for us, and took us to twin peaks to see a night view of San Francisco Bay Area. I wished I had brought my single-lens reflex camera.

At last, she brought me to the hotel, and were relieved to find the man who lost his way.

But, we didn't board any ship.
We were looking for San Francisco Railway Museum only to fail finding it.
We headed for Coit tower by using streetcar and bus.

But, the problem was that we took a bus for opposite direction. After all, we arrived at Fishermans wharf.
We ate clam chowder which is famous in Fishermans wharf.
