When I was in San Francisco I really wanted to go to Chinatown and that did not happen. So before we even got on the airplane I voiced that the one thing I wanted to do was go to Chinatown. We walked from our hotel the Chinatown. It was probably a 20 minute walk from the city center, but I was happy to do it knowing that I was going to the one place I had wanted to go. Did Chinatown live up to my expectations – yes and no. I guess I expected to see more Chinese monuments and buildings and statues etc. I felt like I was stepping into a different part of Seattle. The streets seemed less tidy, the buildings a little grey. There were so many overhead tram cables that it made it really hard to get a clean image without some kind of power line in it. On the flip side there was the beautiful entrance into Chinatown, there was the dragons that are so synonymous with Chinese culture. The people that we passed smiled and hurried on. I found myself wanting more but at the same time enjoying what I was seeing…. Meander with me.
After walking around Chinatown it was time to head back to the hotel. I have to be honest I really enjoyed walking to and around Chinatown but the thought of walking all the way back again had more poor feet complaining. However, you do what you have to do and enjoy it while you can.
