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.

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!

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 :(
