Day 2 in San Francisco started with a lovely breakfast at a small Cafe near our place called Cafe Coco. Had a nice chocolate croissant, sandwich, hot chocolate and cappuccino. Decided a heavy breakfast would be good considering the long day we had ahead.
After having breakfast, we decided to go to Macy’s at Union Square. Union Square is one of the most happening areas in San Francisco. You name a brand and its there. Despite it being morning time and a working day as well. ..I was surprised by the number of people on the road and in Macy’s.
I loved Macy’s!! It was so huge! !! One can spend a day and yet not be satisfied. I went bazzerk looking at a whole ground level only dedicated to cosmetics and makeup! ! There was this section around Personal Assistant for shopping.. reminded me of some novels I have read 😉
There was a seperate Macy’s building for mens! Can you believe it!! The winter collection was amazing. ..what lovely jackets!
The festivities for Thanksgiving & Xmas have started around Union Square and it was a sight to see the Macy’s Xmas tree… which by the way. .would be atleast 2-3 storey high! Inside Macy’s the whole theme was around ‘Believe’ that Santa does exist:) they had this cute little mailbox kept where kids could write down their wishes and drop it inside the mailbox addressing to Santa, North Pole!!
We saw a lot of other shops in Union Square like Wallgreens, Sephora, Victoria’s Secret, PINK, H&M, Forever 21 and last but not the least..Saks Fifth Avenue! I really felt I was in some fashion capital; )
After grabbing a quick lunch at Burger King, we proceeded to Nordstrom!! It was so huge! All the facy brands under one roof! Did some window shopping there and proceded to see the Financial District area. As the name suggests, this is a full are of large MNC Banks like Wells Fargo, Chase, Bank of America, Citi Bank, Union Bank, BNP Paribas and many more.
I was simply amazed with the architecture in this area. Tall glass buildings.. some of which you can see the work stations as well. .and some old vintage architecture as well. Outstanding! I wished I could work in any of the offices in this area!
Towards the evening, it was nice to see all formally dressed people rushing back to catch their subway trains and the ques in Starbucks getting longer by the second:)
Someone is taking on the phone. . Someone is sipping his coffee. .. someone was doing facetime with his kid promising to be home soon:) Normal things but yet brought a smile on my face. .. while I also felt a part of this crowd … walking in the cold weather. .hands in my jacket and sipping my Starbucks:) Feeling blessed 🙂
Its me signing off for now. ..stay tuned for more updates.
