Dragons protecting the streets of Chinatown, Seattle

Close to King Station you find the Chinatown district. It is rather small but contains some interesting gates, wall paintings and our favorites, many dragons. The dragons are twisted around streetlight poles. Their heads high in the sky and looking down into the streets. This is not your average guard dog.

In de buurt van King Station vind je het Chinatown district. Het is redelijk klein maar geeft enkele leuke poorten, muurschilderingen en als onze favorieten, vele draken. De draken hangen kronkelend hoog in de straatverlichtingspalen. Hun kop in de lucht en neerkijkende in de straten. Dit is geen traditionele westerse waakhond.
