LA - El Pueblo

I was exhausted after our day walking around the Getty so we didn't wander very far from our hotel the next day. 

Lucky for us, the hotel was only a block away from Olvera Street:  home of everything Mexican.  Since it is just across the street from the train station, we've visited the area many times and even have a favorite restaurant, La Golondrina.  Our lunch was just this side of Mexican ambrosia.

We love the flowers,

weird trees,

music, spontaneous dancing,



the food, and the rows and rows of things to see, smell, hear, taste, touch, and buy.

We stayed until the very last minute, soaking up the unique ambiance, but then it was time to get across the street to Union Station. 
Time to head for Texas!
