|I Love the Old Men with the Fruit|
|Inside the Market|
|View from Metro Station|
When you first come out of the Pershing Square Subway Station, you get the prettiest view of some of the skyscrapers on what is known as Bunker Hill. Then, you come across the beautiful Angel's Flight Tram, which was built to take you to the top of this very steep hill. You can ride it for just 25 cents. But when it was first built, it only cost .10 cents. Darn, inflation!
After checking out the Angel's Flight, I headed over to the market. The market was so much fun and there was so much going on. There were people haggling over prices, butchers dressed in traditional uniforms, business men catching a quick lunch before going back to work, and little old ladies trying to lure you into their fruit stands, whispering in your ear that their bananas are better than the other people's bananas. That's what she said.
I took a bunch of pictures, and I had a slice of raspberry and lemon cake from a dessert bar, that was AMAZEBALLS, before heading back home.
It was so good for me to get out on my own and have a little adventure. When I first moved here three years ago, I was so intimidated by this big city. I was scared to drive the freeways, and I was scared to take the subway on my own. One by one I conquered all those fears, and if you ask me that is pretty darn cool.
