Day 21 – San Francisco

Posted on July 19, 2021

by Ben Law Today we met with Dean John Levine at the Embarcadero. Embarcadero is Spanish for embarking, and the place held that name because the area used to be a huge port for trade.

by Kaela Paulin      This morning we spent a lot of time driving through different parts of LA.

I had no Continue Reading »
