We walked down to North Beach, the Italian district of San Francisco. This is Saints Peter and Paul Church, just off of Washington Square.
We found a cafe (Cafe Puccini) and had a morning snack.
We then browsed City Lights bookstore, where the Beat poetry movement started.
Time for lunch, we hopped a bus to Vino e Cucina. This is an Italian restaurant with great food. I had a Panini and Ryan had a huge calzone.
Took the bus back to Chinatown and had a crazy bus driver. At a stop, passengers were entering through the rear door and we started yelling at them...asking if it was normal to enter a bus through the rear door. He wouldn't let anyone else on the bus.
Next up we joined a City Guides Chinatown walking tour.
This used to be a telephone exchange, it is now a bank.
These lamps are all over Chinatown.
This is a view of a typical Chinatown alley. You can see Coit Tower in the background.
We saw some interesting things for sale in the markets, like live frogs and roosters.
