Two weeks ago Grandhunk #1 asked me if I wanted 
to join him on a fieldwork trip for his anthropology class.
Didn't matter the reason, a yes was forming on my lips.

Then he said it was to Olvera Street, and I said ,,,

Is the Pope Catholic? OF COURSE!
So he picked me up at 10 AM & we were off to LA.

Once parked and at Olvera Street, another world.

Full of sparkling colors and treats.

Treasures galore.

Toys & more.

Gifts, big and tiny ...

Something for everyone, girls & boys ...

Eye candy everywhere ...

Hard not to come home with something?

And then there is the city, beautiful Los Angeles.

LA City Hall in the distance

The still present flavor of Old California.

With City Hall in the background. ...

LA City Hall in the distance

And some graffiti on the way home.

Three hours to treasure. I was there when he was born ...
 and I love him endlessly.

Jordan's got clout!
That's a popular term that 
only the hippest Grandma;s know!
