On Friday I woke up early. Not quite as early as in Hawaii, but let's just say early.
So early, walking around Chinatown looked like this
So early, the kite shop wasn't open yet
So early, I had the playground all to myself
Except that there were dozens of old Chinese people doing their exercises there. When Aki pooped out of her diaper onto daddy and the ground, they gathered around us, talking in Chinese, laughing and pointing. Ok, so I didn't wake up early enough to avoid that.
Still Chinatown was really cool...
Chinese job board. Anyone want to work for a Chinese restaurant in Orlando, Florida? Room and board included!
Instant "Chinese" mannequin. All you need is black spray paint!
We went to the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory. It was already open, churning out the fortune cookies. They were yummy! This lady gave them to us hot off the press!
She was actually very friendly, although those things are probably really hot
It was a small place
Cool fortune cookie machine
After we got back, Aunty Melissa met up with us and we caught the bus across town to the Exploratorium. This is like the Museum of Science, only way cooler. Actually it's much more like the Discovery Museum, only bigger.
Making a rockslide like in my George-makes-a-rockslide-and-discovers-a-giant-dino-skeleton book
Now this is a big boy chair

After not getting any gelato because I fell asleep, we caught the bus back across town. Mommy almost had a stroke getting the stroller off the bus in Chinatown. Apparently people in San Francisco use whatever door they want to get on the bus, but especially the nice, big and free back door. And when there are dozens of Chinese people waiting to get on the bus, they don't wait for big strollers to get off. We'll just leave it at that.
At Union Square we saw a dance group called the AscenDance Project.
This "jungle gym" looks fun! How come there are no jungle gyms in Boston?
Then they started climbing up these walls with just their hands and feet!
I was enthralled
Day 2, another day of fun! I could get used to this!
