Such a colorful melange of things on display along the sidewalks of SF’s Chinatown today.

Happy Year of the Tiger, everyone! Goodbye damn tough Ox.

  4. I loved the architecture of Old Chinatown in SF and was amazed by the variety of traditional embroidered Chinese shoes, but I didn't buy anything in the end – there was too much cat and dog fur on display in the shop windows :(
