Peace, Love, Rock-n-Roll! (Berkeley)

3

If you'll stay in San-Francisco for a few days, this way or another you'll find yourself in Berkeley, the cradle of hippies - till nowadays you can see (and hear) the spoken word poets on the central Telegraph street. The peace-fighting atmosphere of sixties is naturally preserved till today - and you easily find some commercialized hippie-culture artifacts such as stickers, tie dye t-shirts and bijouterie.

Berkeley is also famous being the home for University of California (Berkeley campus), the best public school in California. Its exploration can either lead to some pretty cool shots. Don’t forget to visit the botanic garden on the very top of the hill.

You’ll see races, cultures and food from all around the world. Space is the place :)
