Explore Yourself in San Francisco

BY 鄭凱華KAI HUA CHENG
@ VOL 27 ON DEC 19, 2015

Ms. Cheng thinks San Francisco is an excellent place to learn the cuisine of every country. She used restaurants, markets, second-hand supermarkets, and second-hand bookstores to introduce different cultures, as well as the popular Blue Bottle coffee shop to show the tolerance for different possibilities. Ms. Chen also shared different landscape attractions, including the beautiful town 'Sausalito' across from San Francisco bridge and the AT & T Stadium. She has observed that Americans value family life and love to exercise. She thinks the process of exploring a city is actually to explore yourself, and each city will change you, if you let it.

鄭凱華認為舊金山是很適合學習各國料理的城市,並以餐廳、市集、二手超市、新舊二手書店介紹不同文化,以及受歡迎的Blue Bottle咖啡店等,包容著不同的可能性。並分享不同景點的風景,包括舊金山大橋對岸的美麗小鎮Sausalito、AT&T球場,並觀察到美國人注重家庭生活與喜愛運動,而感想是探索城市的過程是探索自己,不要對自己設限,每個城市都能帶給你改變。
