This our lovely Union Station...to save gas we took the train in. (It looks as it's about to get hit by a meteor in this pic....watch out everybody - the sky is falling!!)
Olvera Street vendors...muy gangas!
Here's my lovely sister, April, in front of the Japanese Village marker.
Why so angry little doll?
These lamps were also in I Love Boba. They kinda remind me of that hat that Phyllis Diller used to wear so I had to take a pic.
This sign shows all our sister cities throughout the world. I've never heard of half of them and only been to one. Behind the sign is our city hall building. Though not the tallest in the city by far, it's probably the most recognized.
This is our brand new CalTrans building. If you love modern architecture (and I do) this building is impressive but not as visually striking as...
The Walt Disney Concert Hall. Frank Gehry is my hero.
After our trek past modern mile, we ended up in China Town where they were having their Chinese New Year Festival. We made it in time to catch the very end of the parade.
One of the floats...I don't know who these people are but we waved at them anyway.
This was the last float in the parade...the princesses.
We ended the day and had dinner back on Olvera St. (this is actually the street that runs parallel to it).
This is the Mission Nuestra Senora Reina de Los Angeles across from Olvera St.
And here we are on the train to go back home (that's my foot in the reflection) after a very long but fun day.
