Fan Tan Alley
Tuesday morning, June 24, Karen and I took Weston for a little walk around downtown Victoria and ended up finding Fan Tan Alley, the narrowest commercial street in North America. It’s in the Chinatown area and as we walked down we met one of the shop owners out in the alley who told us that when he’s working he feels like he’s not even in the city, like he’s almost in another world. It was very quiet in there. It reminded us of some of the narrow streets in Barcelona without the laundry hanging up over our heads out of the apartments above.
