A Day In Pacifica!

Pacifica is a small city in San Mateo County situated at the other end of Pacific Ocean. It is a famous leisure place for fishing and crabbing. There is a structure that looks like a bridge where people can set up gears to catch fishes and crabs.  Of […]

Joe’s Crab Shack

It is safe to say that this place is always full and waiting time to be seated is at least 30 minutes. But if one goes here from 11AM-2PM, 2 hours waiting time is good enough. They open at 11AM and closes midnight.   Joe’s Crab Shack has […]

China | Temple of Heaven

Upon arrival at the Temple of Heaven complex, I noticed people playing cards along the corridors. Some are having dancing exercises at the lawn while others do some sort of martial arts exhibition.  And some others are knitting. All these observations made my visit here more interesting. The […]
