the other side of the Mission

Before the Mission District became the gentrified haven for urban hipsters and bohemians, it was (and still is) San Francisco's Latin Quarter. While Valencia Street is peppered with cute boutiques, galleries and chic cafes and bars, Mission Street transports you to Mexico City or East L.A. Here's a cyclist that personifies that other side of the Mission, with his sweet purple easy rider, tiger print faux-fur jacket, baggy jeans (can't wait for that style to disappear), oversized t-shirt, ghetto-fab shades, long black hair and goatee.

Viva la diferencia!
