Don't you love Murals?
I love them and fascinated by them. It can make a neighborhood even more vibrant and colorful. On a trip to San Fransisco and the Bay Area we were able to visit San Francisco's Chinatown and Oakland's. The two neighborhoods had different feel to them.
San Fransisco's Chinatown is very hilly and compact, It is filled with bright murals, red lanterns, gift and tourist shops, antiques and restaurants. We had lunch at San Sun restaurant and really enjoyed it
Oakland's chinatown smaller in feel and a bit more spread out. Although, Oakland seemed to have many more murals, and they were bright and fun. They seemed to be everywhere. A great way for artists to express their heritage
