China Town dreams…

a-1

We did make it over to China Town in San Francisco yesterday.

a-2

We were running out of time… and sunlight… so we didn’t stay long. I don’t have any pictures of my favorite stuff, like the butcher shops and herbal medicine stores…

a-3

But trust me, you can get anything in China Town. I may be wrong, but I think this is still the largest Chinese community in the United States.

I have always loved China Town. It has the ambiance, the smells, the tastes.

a-5

And it has… ummmm… oddly satanic Santa kites.

a-6

And, of course, it has boba!

a-7

It is just fun.

a-8

And where else are you going to see a life-sized replica of a terracotta warrior standing on a second floor awning?

a-9

Let alone one wearing a Santa hat… and we saw an older gentleman playing Christmas carols on one of those ancient Chinese violins. I thought it would be rude to take a photo.

Until next time, old friend.

    I was there a few years ago, I love the area! The Chinese section of Boston has a very similar feel. My cousin turned me on to a chinese bakery there; who knew they had ovens?

  2. Ok – post-to-post and coast-to-coast…
