Chinatown and cable cars

Today we checked off a couple of things on Billie’s bucket list. We drove to Walnut Creek and took BART into San Francisco. A very friendly boy going to the Giants game with his dad started up a conversation with Billie:
Near Market & Embarcadero:
Don’t let the smile fool you, I’m hanging on for dear life:
There are so many places to eat in Chinatown, therefore hard to know which one to choose. We took Sunset magazine’s suggestion and ate at R & G Lounge. Excellent choice!
Dubious Billie explored the markets and herb shops with many unusual offerings, including different varieties of ginseng (some cost $400/lb) or dried sea cucumbers.DSC00882

There was a 45-minute wait for the cable cars, so we walked along the wharf and caught a bus.DSC00895

Check and check. Now Billie needs to add more things to her California bucket list. Fun day!
