Another gem in Los Angeles: the historic and quaint Olvera Street in Downtown LA. I had never been to the tourist hot-spot till recently with the boy and my mother-in-law on our grand tour of downtown. It’s one of those places that they tend to take 3rd year Spanish students in high school, but somehow I missed out on that field trip. And while it’s completely cheesy and a tad stereotypical, I totally loved the whole atmosphere of Olvera Street! The bright colors, the music, all the strange little shops. I can’t wait to go back and eat at some of the Mexican restaurants and snag myself a lovely embroidered dress. Mucho gusto!
