We woke bright and early for breakfast at our new hotel Best Western Americana in San Francisco. The rooms were great and it had a pool on the roof!

Silvia says her farewell to some of TechGirlsUK before leaving to collect her son from school – we have had an amazing few days with her and we will miss her!

Thankyou for your time and enthusiasm – we look forward to our next visit 🙂
