My World #80: 2010 Aids Walk Part 2

26 Jul

To continue from last week’s post, I am here to show you some more of the shots I took while doing the 6 mile walk around Golden Gate Park.


I saw someone who has been doing this walk for a while as evidenced by all the souvenir pins that they give each year.  Did I count 14?  14 years of walking for AIDS? 

Didn’t know Robert Burns has a statue inside the park.

We saw bellydancers who we’ve been told are here yearly to entertain walkers.  Other performances were stationed along the route at regular intervals and included UC Berkeley’s marching band, a Japanese drum performance, a Filipino martial arts demonstration, etc.

And we passed by the Conservatory of Flowers with its beautifully manicured front lawn.

    Hi Ewok, I recognized the landmarks within the Park (my Husband and I try to bike through it every year in the spring). No place is quite like SF!

    Have to agree with Barb — there is no place like SF! Always love the time I’ve spent there. Your photos are superb as always! What a beautiful place and such a worthwhile event! Thanks for sharing! Have a wonderful week!

    Great shots from the AIDS walk. I like how you can see such a long line of people in the first shot. The belly dancers look so colorful and lovely almost like part of the garden.

    What a good idea to show Your World via this AIDS walk. I like the idea of having little spots of entertainment along the route. I love Japanese drumming. The idea of pins is not as big here in Australia as it is in the USA.

    I guess the pins are easier to collect and show than t-shirts!
    That conservatory looks wonderful.

    Now that’s a healthy way to spend a weekend morning, and for a very good cause too.

    We should start one here soon. HIV/AIDS cases are going up among call center employees and OFWs. Not good.

    Love Golden Gate Park and it is a great venue for the walk. You can easily forget the exhaustion with all the beautiful distractions. You really get to see so much more on foot. I miss SF, it has been home (for a short while) for me in the late 80’s.

    If I was walking, I will make a stop at the Conservatory of Flowers. I love these places.

    I liked the bellydancers’ costumes. Not to flashy as in the Mid East.
