Day 1: Sunday, April 10, 2011 (continued)
Continuing on...we left Union Square and walked up the remaining couple of blocks towards our hotel....we then made a right on our street and a block past our hotel was the entrance gate to China Town.
At first glance when you walk in, it's a pretty basic downtown-like street...tourists, shops, buildings, just with lots of Chinese writing on the signs.....
This had me cracking up - I'm standing there taking pictures of various things, then I look over at Caydan and he was standing there trying to take a picture of himself with this creepy clown figure. It was really cute watching him try it. I then asked him if he wanted me to take the picture for him, which he did, lol. :)

So then as you keep walking down the street (we're walking down Grant Street, FYI), all of a sudden you see the streets lined with these beautiful lanterns. It looks so festive and pretty!

Next up is Japantown and the Cherry Blossom Festival....and the end of Day 1. :)
