Your mission: paint

The mission in san francisco has some amazing street art. We spent an afternoon wandering around looking at it. Clarion alley has some of the best, and it is a good spot to see lots in one place. The downside is that it is a fairly dodgy area. Walking past the 16th and mission st. muni stop wasn't all that pleasant (we saw a guy holding a paper bag and counting a giant wad of cash amongst other things), and when we were in the alley a couple of people walked up and crouched in a corner to take their drugs...The valencia st. side is pretty nice compared to the mission st. side though, amazing the difference a block makes.

Afterwards we had lunch at a peruvian place on Valencia and hit up the world famous Tartine bakery for some pastry treats.
