A recent lady date with Jen turned into a Chinatown adventure. If you've never been to Chinatown in San Francisco I can only describe it as overwhelming. The sidewalks are constantly packed with tourists and locals alike, everyone is taking photos of everything, and there are a million colorful things to distract you at every turn. Luckily we knew enough to ditch the main street for the less crowded alleys and side streets, and after hitting the vintage stationary jackpot we ended up in North Beach for a bit of dessert and wine. The perfect conclusion to an unexpected adventure with one of my favorite girls.

China Town in any major city is always the most fun and colourful part of the city. These pics are wonderful!

Hooray - we have the same sunglasses (though mine aren't tortoiseshell!) I always feel a bit like a mad scientist when I wear mine - always a good feeling!
