Chinatown in San Francisco is always a fun place to "visit" but in a few hours I am headed for the real deal or China 1.0, boarding a plane at SFO that will teleport me directly (well 12 hours directly) to Shanghai, where later in the week I am attending/participating in the Learning 2.008 conference.
Excited is an understatement for my first visit to Asia, and this is leg 1 of 3. Following this is a week in Hong Kong and another one in Japan.
And no jokes about how they adore dogs in China, ok?
And for some reason I cannot pass the irony that the entrance here to Chinatown is on “Bush” street, where the welcome sign is “Do not walk” ;-)
Look for the volume of photo flow to escalate from me– well if the proxy suggestion from Wes Freyer works behind the wall.
