Hippie days and Ana's memorial

For peace loving aging hippies Haight & Ashbury Streets in San Francisco are almost a place of worship, a pilgrimage to take. The area is still full of love and peace, of cute shops and all things alternative: eco, bio, piercings, drunks totally out of it sleeping on the sidewalk ... and patches for the soul.
Jimmy Hendrix watches over all this.

After the walk down memory lane, Ana asked to visited the Holocaust memorial: I repeat the motto: Remembrance is the beginning of redemption. Ana was right about this place a stark and moving beauty held up against the horrors of war and the concentration camps where Jews, gypsies, trade union people, resistance members, communists and many more perished... No more- never again.
