Refer to this book, many of the most famous and a little expensive shops are in Regent Street, Bond Street and in Knightsbridge. Some people in the UK say that the most famous shop in the world is Harrods in Knightbridge. Harrods is a classical and royal department store in the UK. Royal family often go this shop. Oxford Street has many big shops for example, Selfridges, Marks and Spencer,and Debenhams. If you want smaller shops, you can go to Covent Garden. Charing Cross Road is famous for its book shops. Petticoat Lane market is in Middlesex Street and it has a lot of cheap clothes and things for the home. Families will gather this shop and buy something good in weekends. This shop seems to open on Sundays. Old Spitalfields Market in Commercial Street has some of the latest clothes in town and they are very cheap. I want to go these shops and look for nice clothes there.

I've read this book in this week. This book has a lot of information of San Francisco, such as history, land, travel and sightseeing and so on. This book has 10 chapters. I'll refer to some chapters which I think are interesting.
1. The city of hills
This chapter is introduction of this book. San Francisco is located in the west coast of the United States, States of California.
2. Early days
This chapter is about history of San Francisco. People began to live here thousands of years ago. People were Native Americans. The reason why people lived here was feature of land. San Francisco is in bay side area, so people got a lot of seafood and wild animals. I think that San Francisco has many elements which people should live. These vital elements are water, food, sea and mountains I think. There is a most important incident in San Francisco. It is a 'Gold rush'! The founder of gold for the first time was a worker called James Marshall. He found it in the river. Many people came here and looked for gold, and it's about 40,000 people. They came from Asia, Europe and around the world! It flourished in 1849. There is a American football team named 'San Francisco 49ers'. It was made from gold rush. San Francisco developed on account of this historical incident.

4. The fog and the fault
San Francisco had experienced a lot of disaster, such as fog, too much rain and earthquake. In 1989, there was a big earthquake, the Loma Prieta earthqake. San Francisco includes San Andreas Fault. That's why it's easy to occur earthquake, like Japan and Indonesia. In this book, we can see 'More than three thousand people lost their homes and about sixty people died.'(p.17)
6. The bridge and Alcatraz
7. Golden Gate Park
