Wandering 129

One of the things I like about San Francisco is walking through the Chinatown Gateway Arch between Grant and Bush Streets. Just walking a few feet past the entrance, I am suddenly transported to a place like Hong Kong–store signs in Chinese characters as far as my eye could see, tiny shops next to each other filled with Asian antiques mixed in with San Francisco souvenirs and colorful trinkets. Yesterday, Grant Street was closed for The Flower Market Fair which happens a week before Chinese New Year. This was my fourth time to attend.
