Today was Carnaval in San Francisco and on the Festival on Harrison Street I saw this band playing in a garage. I believe their name was "Faith". Because I was late for the parade, no pictures of it. Instead a picture of the Festival and a band contributing to the Festival.

Smile ....

I took the picture a while ago and when I passed the location last week, I saw there's a lot of construction going on, the "Smile" is gone and I don't know what the place will become.

Oakland Bay Bridge Toll

Driving from Oakland to San Francisco you have to pay the bridge toll. At certain times there are a lot of cars. Guess, today I was lucky.

another statue

I apologize for not uploading pictures recently. But I've been pretty busy the past weeks.

I'm not 100% sure, but I guess this statue is Avalokitesvara. It's a Buddha who's "main purpose is to listen to the cries for help from those in trouble and provide them with aid. He is the protector from danger and his sacrifice symbolizes infinite compassion, the sharing of mankind's misery and a willingness to help those in distress. The eight arms symbolize his reaching out with compassion to save the world. The famous Chinese view of Avalokitesvara is a women known as Kuan Yin (or Kwan Yin)."
I saw the statue outside of the San Bao Temple, where I went yesterday.
