STROLLING SAN FRANCISCO

As mentioned previously, I arrived early in San Francisco and went for a walk. It was a cold Sunday afternoon (November) but sunny. The concierge laid out a route and I began walking toward Chinatown.

Chinatown and a cup of tea. There were a lot of tea shops offering a cup of tea.

I didn’t really understand the free tasting thing. I was trying to order a green tea and they kept giving me these tiny little cups until they understood I wasn’t there to buy a big box of tea.

I passed this shop and stopped. A Sakura tree … we bought the same one in Japan (but in white)

Pretty cold. Not a big time for outdoor patios.

Down an alley and I was stopping in at the place where they invented the fortune cooking. 50 cents to take a photo …

Love the architecture of the city. Toronto should have protected more of their buildings.

This tower will always have special meaning for me. My very first – large sales deal was at Transamerica in Canada. I will always remember the Transamerica tower on their business cards (A guy honked at me when I stopped to take this).

It was the first time I had ever wandered around San Francisco as I always go airport>hotel>meetings>airport. Nice city.
