I know what you guys are thinking – “Whaaa? Has Yael gone on a Mexican vacation?” Well, not really, but pretty close!
I don’t know why it took me so long to visit Olvera Street; it is the closest thing to home that I’ll find here in Los Angeles. Thank you so much Felicia for discovering this little gem for us! We had an unbelievable time; this place is just perfect for a weekend afternoon and a mini get away without even leaving town. This colorful Mexican-style marketplace is just loads of fun with stands full of so many goodies. Dan and I decided we should absorb some of the greatness of the famous street and grabbed some authentic Mexican candy – so yummy!
I really enjoyed strolling around this little Hispanic neighborhood and listening to some Latin music – it brought me so many good memories of my childhood. We got so lucky and showed up at the best time apparently; right when some beautiful Mexican dancers were performing at the plaza. Aren’t their dresses gorgeous? They are so full of life!
I hope these pictures have brought some color into your day. I’ll post the rest of them tomorrow! 🙂
