Lombard Street in San Francisco measures a quarter long. The speed limit is only five mph. The street is well-known for having a steep, one-block section. On two sides of the street are most expensive mansions, town houses, and condominiums. Lombard Street is best known for the one-way section on Russian Hill between Hyde and Leavenworth Streets, in which the roadway has eight sharp turns that have earned the street the distinction of being one of the most crookedest street in the world.
My friend, Katelyn, is in Germany for the summer. She said that as they crossed the Rhine, she learned of an interesting tradition that has recently started on that bridge. Couples will take a lock, and attach it to the bridge's fence and throw the key into Rhine for love and good luck. So, all the way across the whole bridge the fence is covered in locks!
