    ..or else you will be disappointed. I happen to see a few here but not during the "Return of the Swallows" event at the mission. They just happen to be flying gracefully during a day visit earlier in 2005. The city surely hypes up the event for tourists, and who can blame her?

    Inevitably there will be a gaudy souvenir shop next to any historic site. It is a fundamental law of human nature--the tacky must invade the pristine.

    Fun Alternatives: Buy your gifts and keepsakes in the gift shop located on the mission premises. Part of the proceeds will be used to maintain and restore the mission.
