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.

  1. Any kind of market is my favorite thing to attend to. I just love the bustle, the cute people, the colors, and the fabulous food!

  2. I love the hustle and bustle of a China Town market. The colors are so vibrant! I hope you enjoy SF….

    I've lived here for 7 years so I'm partial…but it is definitely a beautiful city!

  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 :(

  5. Has to be said – tiger beer is a nice one! Loving the images: definitely wish I were there rather than here…

  6. i could quite easily say candied ginger is the best thing ever right now!
