SFSU Freshman get Orientation: So We hit Chinatown, this time.

G. has become my Favourite Co-pilot, ever. Also he had just been to San Francisco with his old boss (to the Opera!) so he knew where he wanted to go and show me.

We drank all the free tea in China....well almost, until Pop-pops got bored and rumbly.

Which indicated it was time for another trip to the gumball machine. And his new favourite thing: bribery. A 25 cent gumball goes a long way. Even the pink spitty one that rolled away.

The day was sunny and warm enuf for Pop-pops to get semi nekkers and drenched in the park sprinklers! Hicks, I tell ya....We really do know how to enoy ourselves while we are outta town.

G. is a fierce and happy young dragon....he wears size 46 kung fu shoe! And he just found out while being orientated that he is exempt from regular old freshman english and math because he took so many AP classes while in high school. So now his schedule is all freed up for more Music! Music. Music.

How fun it is to be a total tourist and think,

"oh look, REAL Chinese laundry." It was a very good trip.

man! I'm so jealous, I've always wanted to go to SF, just to hang out in Chinatown. I would probably want to stay there the entire time. Looks like you had a blast!

Ahh the smell of Chinatown in the summer...

No one has been able to explain why the puddles are white, green, red, ect either...

That could just be Chinatown New York City style.

There must have been better food in Chinatown.

Pop pops is a patient young soul.

Sigh - makes me want to jump on a plane right now. One of my dream destinations. San Fran. And the laundry strangely brings Hong Kong Fu to mind.
