The only thing we hadn’t done that was still on Louise‘s list was visiting the mission district. Packed and ready to check out our hotel, we still had three hours to spend in San Francisco before picking up our taxi to the airport.
Mission District is relatively spread out.
I found the Women’s Building we passed the most fascinating.
One of San Francisco’s largest and best known murals, MaestraPeace and serves as a visual testament to the courageous contributions of women through time and around the world.
Every day, the mural attracts the awe and cameras of tourists from around the world. It is seen by them and the San Francisco Bay Area community as a work of artistic achievement and a symbol of the contributions of women throughout history and the world.
MaestraPeace Mural is highlighted in the book “Street Art San Francisco: Mission Muralismo” and is recommended as a “must see” in countless travel books and websites.
The mural was fully cleaned and restored in 2012 by the original muralists with the assistance of a new generation of muralistas.
The flight from San Francisco to when we settled in our condo apartment on Maui was tiring. We flew out late in the afternoon for a five-hour and 45-minute flight, which wasn’t too bad. But then we had to transfer terminals after picking up our baggage and going through security again to fly to Maui.
After arriving, we picked up our car rental and made it to the apartment. It was past midnight, more like 3 AM for us.
