It also saw the largest and oldest enclave of Japanese outside of Japan, Japantown (Japantown, San Francisco), completely empty out many of its residents as a result of Executive Order 9066 that forced all Japanese of birth or decent in the United States to be interned (Japanese American internment). By 1943 many large sections of the neighborhood remained vacant due to the forced internment. The void was quickly filled by thousands of African Americans who had left the South to find wartime industrial jobs in California as part of the Great Migration (Great Migration (African American)). Many African Americans also settled in the Fillmore District (Fillmore District, San Francisco) and most notably near the Bayview-Hunters Point (Bayview-Hunters Point, San Francisco) shipyards, working in the dry-docks there. The same docks at Hunters Point would be used for loading the key fissile components of the first atomic bomb onto the USS Indianapolis (USS Indianapolis (CA-35)) in July 1945 for transfer to Tinian. Deanery Two The parishes within Deanery Two are made up of those from the Bayview Hunter's Point (Bayview-Hunters Point, San Francisco) neighborhood, and the Excelsior District, Visitacion Valley, and Crocker Amazon, and Ingleside areas.


Riobamba

thumb Chimborazo, the nearby snow-capped inactive volcano. (File:Ecuador Chimborazo 5923.jpg) '''Riobamba''' is a city in the Andean highlands of Ecuador. It is the third largest city in Ecuador and is known locally as the "Sultan of the Andes". Riobamba sits in a valley surrounded by several large hills and snowcapped mountains. It's perhaps best known as the starting point of the train ride to ''Nariz del Diablo''. Many tourists flock to the town in the evening before the train departure. Get in By bus There are connections to most major destinations in Ecuador, including Quito (3 hours), Guayaquil (4 hours) and Banos (1.5 hours). By train There are two trains that pass through Riobamba, one of which is a tourist attraction and one of which is used for transportation. The Nariz del Diablo route (see "Do") is almost exclusively filled with tourists, while the Quito-Riobamba line (temporarily suspended) while scenic, can also be used for travel. See the Ecuadorian Railways website. Get around A bus costs 25 cents. Taxis are plentiful; most trips within town should be $1.50. See thumb Riobamba Catedral (File:Catedral Riobamba.jpg) On a clear day don't miss the view of the surrounding mountains. The best views in the city are from ''Parque 21 de Abril'', close to the train station. Do *Riobamba is the nearest city to '''Chimborazo''', Ecuador's highest mountain at just about 20,500 feet. To climb it you will need a guide and equipment rentals. There are several tourist agencies in Riobamba where you can get both of these services for a price of about $180 per person for a group of 2 or more. Climbing solo with a guide will cost closer to $250. Climbs leave at about 1 AM in order to summit at sunrise and make the descent by late morning. A round trip should take about 9-10 hours. Even if you're not a mountain climber, it could still be worth a visit: take a coach to the Whymper Lodge, stretch your legs, and boast that you've been further from the earth's centre than the summit of Everest. This is because the earth is not a perfect sphere but an oblate spheroid, i.e. it is a little bit "thicker" near the equator, which makes Chimborazo the furthest mountain from its center. If you're feeling acclimated and adventurous, try walking up to the Second Lodge (no guide needed), about 500 M higher in elevation. You'll have to pay the $10 entrance fee, but the views can be spectacular. Beware, though: 500 meters elevation gain is a lot when you're already 4500 M above sea level. Don't attempt this unless you are physically fit and acclimated to the altitude. *Tours in Chiva Express Train to Devil's Nose Metropolitan Touring's Chiva Express is a typical, old-fashioned Latin American bus, with plenty of room on the roof for bags of grain, bananas and the odd chicken. In Quito, these buses have taken on a new lease of life as party vehicles with adapted, high-sided roofs. The Chiva idea had been adapted to the historic train ride from Quito to Guayaquil. Passengers will enjoy an exclusive and unique trip through the Andean countryside and the coastal lowlands visiting the Devil's Nose track on board of Chiva Express. *Alausi is the terminus for the most famous train route in Ecuador, and that is run almost exclusively as a tourist attraction. It is part of the former Quito-Guayaquil railway that is gradually being restored. The passengers used to ride on the roof of the train from Riobamba to the '''Nariz del Diablo''' (Devil's nose). '''However, this is now prohibited due to recent deaths''' but is still allowed on special tourist trains. The scenery along the way is amazing; the best views are supposed to be at the right side. Some people have complained of the soot from the engine and so perhaps the best carriage to be on is the one in the middle, as the engine is moved from the front to the rear for the return journey. As the passengers are almost entirely tourists, expect children begging for candies along the track, and correspondingly a candyseller on the train. The train will make a stop in Guamote and Alausi before heading down the switchbacks to Sibambe. There will be a small break to take some photos before heading back to Alausi and Riobamba. Most people choose to get off at Alausi and take a bus to Ecuador (Cuenca (Ecuador)) or back to Riobamba. The price is $11 for a ride from Riobamba down the Devil's nose and back to Alausi and $3.50 more to go all the way back to Riobamba. The train departs Riobamba at 6:30-7:00 a.m. on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Tickets go on sale on the day prior to departure and the ticket office hours are "usually" between 3 and 6 p.m. (Read: This is not 100% reliable). Tickets are quickly sold out, so be there early, preferably when the office opens. A safer way to ensure a ticket is to book through a travel agency in Quito, or book in advance two or three days in advance. If tickets are sold out in Riobamba, it's possible some may still be available in Alausi. LATEST UPDATE: June 23, 2011 - The train currently '''DOES NOT''' start from Riobamba because the section of track between Riobamba and Alausi is being modified for a new line. The train now starts from Alausi and there are 3 departures Tue-Sat, at 8am, 11am and 3pm. Tickets CAN be bought in advance at the Riobamba train station and costs $20. You can step in anytime to buy tickets (I went at 11am), you will need to show your passport. Note that it takes 2.5 hrs to reach Alausi by bus from Riobamba and you need to be at the Alausi train station at least 20 mins in advance, so figure at least 3+ hrs to get to Alausi. Buses leave for Alausi every 30 minutes. *Riobamba is close to Sangay National Park, which contains several mountains and volcanoes including Tungurahua, Sangay and El Altar. Buy On Saturdays there is a small artesan market. It seems to be mainly aimed at locals rather than tourists, and is certainly more authentic than Otavalo. Between Pinchincha street and España you can find the best boutiques for people of any age. Or if you like malls, check out '''El Mall Del Centro''' locate on '''Leon Borja''' and '''la circumbalacion''' by '''La Plaza de Toros''' Eat Riobamba does not lack for restaurants. No matter what your tastes, check out Calle 10 de Agosto Calle Daniel Leon Borja (Riobamba's main avenue) for all your dining needs. Lunch costs around $2-$5, and dinner is normally from $3-$6. *Cake at the Cafeteria Londres on Garcí a Moreno between 10 de Agosto and Primera Constituyente. * '''El VIP''' A great restaurant-bar on Pichincha street between 10 de Agosto and Primera Constituyente (open Monday-Saturday 12:00-15:00 & 17:00-24:00). Nice music, some books, free WiFi, and some nights there is Karaoke or live music. This is where the hip and beautiful hang out. There are several house cocktails - ''Sex on the Montañas'' is a must. Also good food ranging between 1.50U$-4.00U$, ''Chicken in Chapiñones
