«Interesting facts about San Francisco»
✨Before it was renamed to San Francisco, this small city by the bay was called Yerba Buena. Yerba Buena means, "Good herb" in Spanish. It was founded in 1776, but renamed in 1846. Portsmouth Square in Chinatown was the location of the public square in Yerba Buena.
✨SF has the second largest Chinatown outside of Asia. It's also the oldest in North America. It is around one mile long by one and a half miles wide. More than 100,000 people live in Chinatown. It's the most densely populated neighborhood in the city.
✨SF also has the largest and oldest Japantown in the United States. It's also one of only three Japantown's still that remain in the US.
✨The city is built on more than 50 hills. Many believe it only has 7 or 9 hills, but there are a total of more than 50 named hills. Some of the most well known are Russian Hill, Nob Hill, Telegraph Hill, and Twin Peaks. A few of the lesser known ones are Golden Mine Hill, Excelsior Heights, and Tank Hill.
✨Many believe the waters of the SF Bay are filled with dangerous sharks but there aren't actually any man-eating sharks in the bay. While there are sharks that live in the bay, most are small and not very dangerous. There are numerous great white sharks that live close by in the Pacific Ocean, but they rarely make their way into the bay. (Although a great white was spotted feeding in the SF Bay and caught on camera for the first time in October 2015!)
✨SF is home to the largest competition of American wines in the world. The annual Chronicle Wine Competition is held every February. You can sample the winners and other entrants at the public tasting held a few weeks after the winners are announced.
✨SF is home to more than 50 film festivals each year. Some are large international festivals. Others are smaller with a very focused film offering such as the Greek Film Festival, the Jewish Film Festival, and the American Indian Film Festival.
✨The first electric TV was invented in SF in 1927 by Philio Farnsworth. His working lab was at 202 Green Street.
😱Льодовий готель неподалік від Монреалю - реальна казка з "Крижаного серця". Весь готель побудовано зі льда, ним оздоблені інтер'єри та навіть вишукані ліжка. Кожна кімната має свій дизайн, а сам готель має комплекс саун, капличку та ще багато цікавих сюрпризів. І найголовніше, що ціна за таку казку - лише від 34$ з людини.
Thank you @safirakaunang and @omweed_ for this stunning pictures! 😍😍
Have a very nice day for both of you!

🇬🇧 My same pose when I managed to arrive on top of Gellert Hill 😁 it is uphill,not a so simple climb (the snow didn't help,also) ,but the view on top really was worthy! I recommend all of you going on top at dusk time,when the reflection on the river and the city is even more wonderful.
🇮🇹 La mia posa di quando sono arrivato in cima.
La scalata alla Collina Gellert è impegnativa e la neve non ha aiutato,ma che panorama da lassù! Consiglio caldamente di salirci al tramonto per una vista ancora migliore.
So weirdly. the Joshua Tree National Park only actually became an official national park in 1994 when the Congress passed the ‘California Desert Protection Act’ – which makes you wonder what people were doing there beforehand?
Hiking around the ancient rocks is great fun. There’s different levels of effort required in some spots and you can easily pick your routes and some of the park’s oldest attractions are 1.7 billion years old. We’ve created a map below with some of the main places of interest. Check link in blog.

One of those nights where I edit for hours, only to be unsure of the final result. Taking a change from recent photos, to share this.
Shout out to @miranda_is_livin_like_larry for pushing me on this one.
