San Francisco is the leading financial and cultural center of Northern California and the San Francisco Bay
Area, a region of 7.6 million people, which includes San Jose and Oakland.

Today, San Francisco is one of the top tourist destinations around the world, ranking 35th out of 100 most
visited cities worldwide, and is renowned for its cool summers, fog, steep rolling hills, eclectic mix of
architecture, and landmarks, including the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, and its Chinatown. The city is
also a principal banking and finance center, and the home to more than 30 international financial institutions,
helping to make San Francisco rank 8th in the United States.

San Francisco is located along the sea coast, surrounded by water, with the cool-summer Mediterranean
climate. It is generally characterized by moist warm winters and dry summers. San Francisco's weather
is strongly influenced by the cool currents of the Pacific Ocean, which moderates temperature swings and
produces a remarkably mild year-round climate with little seasonal temperature variation.

Telegraph Hill

Telegraph Hill is primarily a residential area, much quieter than adjoining North Beach with its bustling cafes
and nightlife. Aside from Coit Tower, Lillian Coit Memorial Tower, is well known for its gardens flowing down
Filbert Street to Levi Plaza. It is a 64-meter tower in the Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. The tower, in the
city's Pioneer Park, was built in 1933 using Lillie Hitchcock Coit's bequest to beautify the city of San Francisco.

The scene passing under the Golden Gate Bridge experienced in
June 1960 was printed in my mind.
I will never forget that moment for the rest of my life.
