The only thing i didn’t know was Granny’s house doesn’t have centralized heating. I was cold even inside! I don’t know how this little 92 year lady manages with just a sweater and a vest. There were 2 space heaters but I still wore my jacket inside for 2 days and then my hoodie to bed!
I think I’m gonna stick to visiting in the summer months. It was so windy my umbrella flipped over and broke!
The only plus was this one sunny day where I took the BART (their subway/rapid transit) to Oakland’s China Town and wandered through the market where people were prepping for CNY.
While there I had an awesome bowl of Vietnamese noodles (bun rieu) at Ba Le right in China Town.
