There is a small table and bench area just outside of Four Seas Restaurant on King Street in Chinatown where several locals like to hang out, have a smoke, and play xiangqi (Chinese chess). The group is usually hovering over the game and loudly commenting on what the next moves should be and different strategies to take. I’ve been wanting to get a photo of the game, but I could never see the board. On this day, I had my first clear view of the board itself as well as a gesture from one of the gentlemen playing. I just had to take a photo.
