reflections in a store window across from Abraham Lincoln High School
I said I needed a vacation and I got one. Last week I toured Lincoln Heights with Manny Rodriguez, who's lived there since his family came here from Mexico when he was six years old. Manny knows the neighborhood almost as well as the neighborhood knows him.
Karin Bugge, the Altadena Hiker, had posted about her explorations of this historic Los Angeles area and Manny emailed her and offered to show her around. Bellis and I got to tag along.
Tomorrow here on the blog we'll celebrate Zen Monday as per usual. Then, for the rest of the week, I'll share my favorite Lincoln Heights photos. In the meantime, I think you'll enjoy Karin's post about Manny and our visit.
