I document my visits to the Chinatowns of the world and give a native's perspective. I was born into Chinatown. Not in it, since I was actually born in a nearby Kaiser Hospital on Geary Boulevard, but into it -- the community, people, customs and culture. Kidding aside, my upbringing allowed me to experience firsthand the richness of Chinatown, the camaraderie and friendships developed, the deliciousness of authentic Chinese food, the good and the bad. So much of this is lost on visitors who stay for just a few hours and visit only shops and restaurants designed for tourists. Part of this project is to provide my readers with a deeper understanding of this slice of Chinese immigrant culture. A second purpose of this project is to fulfill my own curiosity. How do other Chinatowns compare to my home Chinatown? What similarities do they share? And how did it come about that Chinese people built not just ethnic enclaves but specifically, Chinatowns , throughout the world, including cities throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, and even areas like Thailand, Tijuana, Singapore, Burma and the list goes on.
