San Francisco’s Chinatown

by | May 6, 2008 | Travel

After spending a lovely night at the Sir Francis Drake on Saturday night and a hearty (but overpriced) breakfast across the street at Sears, we spent Sunday morning walking around Chinatown.

It was still early, so the streets were free of tourists. I loved the ambiance, smells, and artwork that filled the windows on Grant Street. There was also the liberal use of lanterns.

I picked up some ginger tea at the TenRen tea shop and we also bought some freshly-made fortune cookies (with naughty fortunes!) at this tiny factory in Ross Alley.

She was nice enough to pose without me asking, I guess she’s used to silly tourists. :)
