Closer than you think

One of the nice things about living in Downey is that you are close to so many other cities. Over the last few years, I have enjoyed getting familiar with downtown Los Angeles (which is only about 13 miles west of Downey on surface streets). I have also come to realize, since we started blogging every day, that winter is a great time to take pictures in Southern California. The sky is generally more blue and we often get puffy clouds to show up!

And, there is a significant Hispanic culture still vibrant there. The old marketplace is filled with booths selling musical instruments, clothing, toys, food...and rosaries. It is fun to walk around and get a sense of our local history, close to home.
