yo ho ho and a pedicab to go!
Shiver me timbers! This past weekend, the Festival of Sail hit San Francisco, and so a fleet of tall ships were docked in our harbor, which explains the increased number of pirates that could be seen and heard swarming the Embarcadero. Here's one with a pedicab complete with a mythical god-of-the-sea figurehead, and skull and crossbones flag to boot.
What with SF's historical legacy of the Barbary Coast, the pirates seemed to fit into the cultural landscape, and I can imagine these pirate pedicabs as much a permanent symbol as our cable cars.
