“The Hood” is one of our newest staff-led activities here at EC San Francisco. It’s led by Gifford, one of our teachers, and always fills up quickly! Students join him for an in-depth class that explains the history of different San Francisco neighborhoods. Fatih Demiraslan, a stellar student ambassador, joined this activity and wrote a description of his experience. Read about it here! And don’t forget to sign up for “The Hood” at least once before you leave EC! In fact, why not do it every week?
Anyone who wants to know more than that can be seen should join the walking tour with Gifford. This week we’ve visited Haight Ashbury Neighborhood where is the center of hippie revolution. We tried to remember and live the ambiance of “Summer of Love” visiting some of famous musicians’ houses such as John Philipps and Scott McKenzie. This activity started to begin more popular and regular among EC San Francisco activities. We can’t wait for the next one. If Gifford had enough free time, we would want to do it everyday. However we know that it is not possible so that we should wait for the next week.
