We went for our son’s Pokemon cards but San Francisco’s Japan Town gave us more and a lot of first.
First time to see it’s beautiful Cherry Blossoms in full bloom.
First time to see the Japan Town square turn into a festive park where friends and families are having picnic and tea party.
First time to taste authentic Takoyaki. Whatever’s in it, we love it.
First time to experience the unraveling of delicious flavors and texture of mango ice cream wrapped with peaches, corn flakes and green tea crepe. So good, we ate it down to the tip.
San Francisco wasn’t in our bucket list this weekend but our nature hike led us to it. Glad we did because everyone had a great time.
PS. Just want to thank all the San Franciscans and Californians for still following the mask mandates. Everyone I saw was wearing mask and the only time it was off was when people were eating. A sigh of relief in comparison to places where masks are already being burned and caring for other people’s safety is gone. The rest of the seasons are promising for Californians and it’s because they earned it. It’s a relief. It’s hope that soon we will get our normal back. Summer will feel like Summer once again.
Adventure is a choice. It is free. It can be anything we want to escape the ordinary.
So, take one or a dozen now. I assure you, what we have today will not happen exactly the same tomorrow. Time machine is not yet available…or is it?
