    Xiaohuang dessert factory goes out and turns left to San Francisco District. You can find Xiaohuang Square by the river bank. There are all kinds of meals related to the yellow people and other surrounding areas on the square. Many children have bought Xiaohuang popcorn, which is a big jar full of popcorn, children can hold Xiaohuang while walking to eat. The most popular one is Xiaohuang Happy Kitchen. Everyone is waiting in line for Xiaohuang steamed buns. The steamed buns are delicious and the fillings are surprising. There's also a kind of chocolate dessert sprinkled with Xiaohuang's favorite banana flavor. It's super delicious. I accidentally saw a family dressed as minions yellow.

    The dark streets in front of the Human Bone Church and the churches made of human bones are terrible. Run out and buy some chestnuts. How come in again?

    The church is a Roman Catholic church. Its architecture is neoclassical and was built in the second half of the 18th century. In the church there are murals painted by Goya and Francisco De Subalang. It used to be a national ancestral temple, where famous Spanish artists and politicians were buried. The dome of the church is very beautiful. Unlike the general dome of the 18th century, the dome is closer to the style of the Pantheon.

    It was night when I first saw the church, mysterious and gloomy. It's a typical Gothic building with a high spire that can be seen from a long distance.
