We got a late start but we certainly did a lot of walking. Our legs were almost recovered from yesterday's adventures. Some of the walking is difficult because of the hills. It's a terrible strain on the legs but I know they hurt because they got a good exercise.
Today we drove into San Francisco. Jim had the walking tours already planned out for today. Our first stop was Union Square.
Above: Inside the Palace Hotel dining room. Beautiful. A buffet lunch per person is $68.00. As I walked out of this exclusive hotel, I couldn't help but to look angrily at Jim and state in a loud voice, "I can't believe our room wasn't ready yet!"
Above: Crocker Galleria.... O-la-la elite shopping. It was closed today. I was so bummed because I wanted to buy something. OK, not really.
Above: Just humorous. The pocket was wrinkly. Looks like it could use an iron despite the sign.
Above: A grand entrance to Chinatown.
Above: The streets were full with people and vendor booths as part of the Chinese New Year.
Above: A little snack for Jim and I. They were pretty good.
Above: Excuse the glare. There are so many Chinese shop windows with fowl hanging in them. I wanted a closer look and am sad that I did. You'll be sad too. If you look closely, these birds have been cooked with head and all. It's sick. Yeah, I wished someone would have warned me too. Again, the scary thing is these are all over the place.

Above: I'm not going to explain this. This is a very gay neighborhood and these cross streets are NOE- BEAVER.
