Portland, Oregon, US
Visit seagulls at the beach, bison at the park, parrots on Telegraph Hill, Claude the albino alligator at the Steinhart Aquarium of the California Academy of Sciences (and tons of other wonderful wonderful animals!), and lots more critters across the city on this guide to San Francisco's animals! Though this map does depict some (real) major streets and freeways, it is not to scale, so the distance between these places can be misleading, and all references are approximate.

San Francisco is a very cozy city. You can buy chowder soup in Fisherman’s Wharf, sitting beside the bay area and watching Alcatraz Island. Walking in Union Square and taking Cable Car. Passing through the small hills, there’s Golden Gate Bridge’s firework show on evening. Everything in here are wonderful and comfortable!

This is based on a book by my GGGrandfather Edwin Rainbow. He was a journalist, author and Registrar of Birth and Deaths in Coventry, UK at the turn of the last century. He wrote this book in 1916 as a turn by turn description of several walks through his (and my) home city. It's like a time capsule as he describes elegant tree-lined avenues, the tram system and industries of the time. Most of the city was destroyed in WWII and it's fascinating to read what's still there and what's long forgotten.
The places on the map are where I lived and specifically where I spent the bulk of my time. I was truly a small town girl, even though I was living 14,000 miles away from Texas. Naga is my home. The Filipino people are my family. I never forget them. This was a great way to remember my roots.
