This Saturday, I took my girlfriend to Alcatraz, which was an horrible prison and got abandoned in 1963. My girlfriend, Christina, has studied in SF for 2 years but never been on that island. While, I have ever been there once, which was 5 years ago when I traveled with parents during my junior year’s summer vacation. There is one famous quote about Alcatraz, “Break the rules and you go to prison, break the prison rules and you go to Alcatraz..”.
Personally, I still cannot find out the connection between such a terrible place and the most famous city around Bay Area, California, the city with art and peace. I can see the surprise from my girlfriend’s eyes, and I am sure she was shocked by all the things she saw.
It took us 2 hours to finish the whole tour, and finally went back to “harmony” – Pier 39. It was raining, light, but in the sun. At a sudden, I noticed this beautiful rainbow across the sky.
As far I remembered, this is the second or third time seeing a rainbow after raining( I am 25, about to be 26 in next two days). It is never too tired to checking out something beautiful. At that moment, really, there is one song lingering in my brain,
“I see your true colors, shining through”
“I see your true colors, that’s why I love you”
“So don’t be afraid, to let them know”
“Your true colors, true colors, are beautiful, like a rainbow”
