Postcard: Hop on the Cable Car!

021 Hop on the Cable Car! (San Francisco, USA)

San Francisco, USA (1st June 2014)

If you have ever been to San Francisco, you will know that the trams are much more than a means of transportation in the city. In fact, the cable car running in some parts of the downtown is as much an iconic attraction as the Golden Gate Bridge is. Supposed to be started a century and a half ago, these cars are still manually operated, which lends the whole experience an air of romanticism. The traditional cable car experience is now a popular tourist draw in itself and sometimes entails a wait of an hour or more just for a single ride! Fancy a ride on one of these? Or is it just another cheesy tourist attraction in the USA? Decide for yourself!
