"San Francisco is an extraordinary city, because its people have learned to live together with one another, to respect each other, and to work with each other for the future of their community. That's the strength and beautiy of this city..and it's the reason why the citizens who live here are the luckiest people in the world." -George R. Moscone
Being away from California, San Francsico specifically, has made me appreciate where I'm from so much more. I love telling the Italians "Sono di California, studio a San Francisco!" (I'm from California, I study in San Francisco). It seems that a majority of this world have a bad impression on American people but as soon as they hear you're from Cali, they love you. "It's bee-u-tee-ful!" they say. Despite having visited numerous beautiful and quaint Italian towns, I still have that special place in my heart for San Francisco and I do believe it is the best city in the world. I love everything the city had to offer me through the people, the festivals, the history, the artistic lifestyle. The city of San Francisco is truly inspiring; you can be all alone in the city and still feel like you're in good company just by walking around outside.
I don't mean to drone about where I'm from, perhaps I'm feeling slightly homesick. Anyways, I'll be back soon! Baci!
