Sun-Young bought two hats and a red dress. Yasu found a cool Levi's jacket. the clerk was difficult because he had three piercings in his lip and two in his tongue.

At Golden Gate Park, they saw about fifty people dancing and playing drums. to the music was a lot of fun. for the #71 bus home was not fun.
