Wandering Into San Francisco

I am not a city girl.

I was born and raised in the suburbs of central California (okay, technically, I was born in So-Cal, but we only lived there for a month before moving up north), and honestly haven’t spent much time outside of the area I’ve grown up in (queue the ceaseless wanderlust that has developed as I’ve entered into my 20’s). 1,564 more words

San Francisco Sakura Festival@Japan Town

其实在去这个听起来好像樱花祭一样的活动已经是差不多一个月之前的事啦

Rika酱打这五年来在美国上着本科一直就没有回国过到春节

所以寒假结课以后直奔回国在中国好好过了一个新年——直到今年4月初才刚刚回到地球另外一边的这片自由土地上

所以最近在更新的文章大部分是之前这一个月的生活小记 (是啊…不记下来忘掉了该多可惜)

okk…Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival

原来算上今年已经是第48届了

三藩市位于downtown附近的Jtown规模大致与L.A.的小东京相仿
