Yesterday July 12, we took a trip to Chinatown San Francisco. It was really interesting. We took walked down the alleyways, in the alleyway you could hear the sounds of Mah Jong being played and I got to taste a fresh fortune cookie being made. What I did not know was that the fortune cookie was originally created by a Japanese American in San Francisco. It was interesting to know that Portsmouth park was like the living room for the Chinese men to hangout. I asked our tour guide why Chinese are coming into the US. She said that it was because of the economic situation in China. All in all it was a very good experience.
