Hippies

Excellent series on BBC4 about Hippies, and how they came about.

 

Brought back wonderful memories of our Holiday in San Francisco, back in 2005.

Just been looking back through photo's we took. (600+)

 

We walked the Golden Gate Bridge and did several Cable Car Journeys.

 

We love San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge is especially beautiful in the early morning mist whilst walking across.

 

Lovely City.

 

Must go again soon......

 

(We've visited friends nr SF for Thanksgiving more recently, but not done the touristy thing)

Re: Hippies

You can't talk about hippies without Nigel Planer popping up.

Re: Hippies

I think this is a repeat. Having seen it a while ago my impression was that they were seriously self centered and not particularly nice people.  Not sure about the timing but Country Joe and the Fish singing the Vietnam song at Woodstock was a masterclass of public performance.
