The last day is to go to San Francisco. It is recommended to leave at 8 am. In the morning, we punched in the legendary Alcatraz Island. At noon, we had lunch at No. 99 at Fisherman’s Wharf (near Alcatraz Island, within walking distance) and ate local signature seafood Thick soup. In the afternoon, go to the Roman Art Palace to experience the ancient Roman civilization, take a jingle car, and experience the way San Francisco traveled for a hundred years, and then turn to Union Square. Because the flight back to China was a late flight, the time was more ample, so I took some pictures of literary and artistic children in the gay capital Castro district and the mosaic art ladder. Although unwilling, the last day of the trip really ended in such a way.

The villains held here include Chicago’s “Godfather” Al Capone, murderous but talented and talented, “bird man” Robert Stroud, who is extremely researched on birds, and cold-blooded “Machine gun” killers Kelly (George Kelly), Qian Xuesen, etc. The movie The Rock was shot with this island in the background.

The reason they were sent to prison here is because the island is surrounded by cold waves and fierce bloodthirsty sharks. It is impossible to escape from prison. Looking through the prison’s iron windows, you can vaguely see the beauty and vitality, which is just another cruel punishment for them.
