Sam's Diner in San Francisco

Across the street from our Hotel on Market street there was Sam's diner, our first experience on US food (if you don't count the tasteless hamburger I took with Rob Carey the first evening).
American breakfast is something: quick, tasty, and enough to keep you going for a day.
Double eggs, smoked bacon, toast with too much butter, hash brown potatoes, tomatoes and good black coffee.

American food is delicious. Apart from the standard hamburger that first night, I can't remember one single time I did not thoroughly enjoy the meals. Even though quantities are somewhat larger than what we are used to, they were never overdone.
I became a fan of medium rare New York steaks.

That early morning when I wanted to draw Sam's diner, there were a few homeless searching the wastebins.
I added them to the drawing.
In all honesty, I should add that this was the only time during our trip when poverty was so visible.
