After spending six days in Los Angeles, Beatle George Harrison and his wife Patti Boyd flew to San Francisco, where they walked around the hippy district of Haight-Ashbury.

“Actually we went to see my sister Jenny, who was living with a friend in San Francisco,” aldus Patti op de site van The Beatles’ Bible. “Afterwards we thought it would be fun to go and have a look at Haight-Ashbury, the district that had been taken over by hippies.”
“However, the crowds that gathered, well-meaning though they were, pressed upon the English visitors and made life difficult and a little dangerous. George didn’t enjoy Haight-Ashbury, yet it was right and inevitable that one of the Beatles should have been there in those times,” aldus Beatles’ press-officer Derek Taylor in zijn boek Anthology.
