THIS IS MY neighborhood. I took a walk yesterday about noon, and I toted my camera. I had nothing better to do while waiting for my wife to finish her weekly pastry marathon.
This top photo is color because that’s the new house’s prime draw. It was constructed in the past year.
A corner of the plaza, an abandoned place that abuts the church.
Looking across the plaza. A year or so ago, a tornado removed nine trees, a third of the total. The plaza is a block and a half from our Hacienda. Click on the photo to see the old man with the cane.
The place on the left is a pool hall. Never seen it open. Maybe late nights.
Bandstand built about 1904, but it was renovated about a decade ago. I remember.
The first door on the left is where I pay my water bill. About $3.50 a month. It’s not metered.
Zapatería or shoe store. I’ve never seen anyone buy shoes there. The owner is a nice lady.
