San Francisco Chinatown II, California
June 20, 2003 in San Francisco, CA
I woke up at
9:00 am and felt really tired. There was no any motivation for
me to leave the hotel room. I just modified some pictures and did
some preparation for the web pages.
Keith recommended me to take shuttle bus to airport; the shuttle
bus he mentioned called Blue Van. I called 1-800-BlueVan and
booked it. The Blue Van company told me that the van will arrive
between 4:00 to 4:45 pm.
I left hotel almost 1:00 pm without breakfast and lunch. I
walked to Union Square and took cable cab to the China Town.
China Town is always a mess, I just walked around. There is a
video rental shop, the assistants inside were all Shanghainese.
I spoke in Shanghainese to kid with them.
It was almost 2:00 pm but I didn’t find any good restaurant
yet. There is a restaurant pastes the menu on the windows with
Shanghai dish name. I walked in and the boss spook Cantonese
to me, I exited restaurant immediately. I don’t think a
Cantonese can make real good Shanghai food in United States.
They even can’t make good Cantonese food. Eventually, I
gave up finding a Shanghai restaurant. I had Mock Turtle Noodle
at a normal Canton style restaurant, the noodle was Cantonese
noodle and the dumplings inside were real good.
I bought a 24oz Bud Light and a small bottle of Jack Daniel’s.
I went back to Hilton Hotel by #30 public bus. I had nothing
to do and just sat in the lobby and went online through wireless
The chess was behind the glass case, so the photo quality was
