Princess Taiping docks in the SF bay

After 69 days at sea, the Princess Taiping, a handcrafted Chinese Junk and replica of a Ming Dynasty war ship, arrived in San Francisco yesterday (10/14) and plans to stay on for around a week before proceeding to Long Beach.

Gives some creedence to the 'theory' that explorers from
the Far East arrived in the New World some 70 years prior
to Columbus.

More details on the voyage/craft are here
