China Town - San Francisco

China Town - San Francisco
China Town's southern entrance known as "Dragons' Gate" is located on Grant Ave and is a symbol of the largest Chinatown outside of Asia and the oldest Chinatown in North America. Established in 1848 it is popularly known as a "city-within-a-city" and retains its own customs, languages, places of worship, social clubs, and identity.

We walked along Grant Ave and explored many of the souvenir shops looking for good gifts to bring home. I picked up a miniature clay warrior since I have wanted one for a long time although I will admit I wanted a full size it just didn't make sense with my limited space.
