Out and About in LA: Chinatown

So this is kinda silly but the other day I was watching Big Trouble in Little China. A great, John Carpenter movie by the way which is on Netflix Instant and I highly recommend. But watching that movie made me realize: I don’t go to Chinatown as much as I should. When I lived in Philadelphia I went to its Chinatown once but wasn’t impressed. It’ll be a while before I go to San Francisco and experience what Kurt Russell experienced in the movie. Although I very much doubt I will be dealing with mysticism or warriors with elemental powers. Anyways, here is a travelogue of Los Angeles…
