Downtown San Francisco was once a favorite place for us to visit, even for just a few days. We could shop and dine, all walking distance from our hotel. But the national problem of homelessness, compounded by the pandemic, has changed the area dramatically.

He was advised not to go as it would be dangerous with the homeless situation and not the same as he remembered.
