Haight-Ashbury District, 5/12/2016

John and I are of the age that we well remember the late 1960s and early 1970s. So, of course, a walkabout in the Haight-Ashbury District was required! It was the place of legendary musical figures such as The Grateful Dead and equally legendary hippie love (and drugs). 

Some of that vibe still thrives in this part of San Francisco. 

There are still lots of shops with items from that era and, of course, a tattoo shop, music store, and some food establishments. 

And murals painted on buildings...

There was pot-smoking on the sidewalk, but, sadly, homeless people as well. We saw several eating out of trash cans. Heartbreaking. 

We parked on the street where we were able to use a credit card to pay the meter. I also went to a Wells Fargo ATM where you had to use your card to enter access the ATM machines. Not sure I would want to frequent this part of town at night, but it was interesting to see. Rock on!
