Well, we decided Monday would be a good day to venture out and try visiting Chinatown again. We made it this time! We visited a fortune cookie factory and some kitschy touristy shops. We saw some dried seahorses for sale among other novelties, and we rounded out our visit with dim sum. This experience with dim sum was much more pleasant than our last, primarily because we weren't so overwhelmed by the employees and carts (this tea room had an a la carte menu).
After our Chinatown adventure, we moved on down the cable car line to Ghirardelli Square and Fisherman's Wharf.
By the time we finished, we were all exhausted. After a long wait for the cable car, we boarded only to discover there was a problem on the line and we'd have to transfer to a shuttle bus midway through the route. We decided to go ahead and risk it and it was actually pretty efficient. We were sore, tired, and happy to be home.
Stay tuned for Part 4!
