If you are a fan of Jamie Ford's book, The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, you might like to visit Canton Alley off of King Street between 7th and 8th (you can learn more about that here).
Today we took advantage of the dry weather and took down our Christmas lights from the eves, took down the tree, cut it up into the yard waste bin, tucked away all the dear little ornaments, boxed up the decorations, and cleaned house. Then we had yummy Cantonese food for lunch: hot and sour soup, chicken, and noodles. . .and fortune cookies, of course! Made me homesick for San Francisco.
