Sorry for late reply. It didn't send me email notification!
That's awesome about tour to Canada. I wish I was doing that but have to go back to work and it is on my list for the next couple of years along other stuff. Are you on topdeck for Canada?
How exciting for you. I have been to NYC years ago, what a city and definitely a lot to explore.
Are you keen on seeing Alacratz prison? We would book for it soon on whatever the date is soon? I think I fly off on 24th of August at night.
Which hostel are you staying at in SF?
