  • Beautiful day, chilly in the shade. Park is open. Loved the visit
  • A nice walk through market between two streets. Most of the stuff that the sellers were selling I could easily get in Los Angeles. However, some of the ceramics they had were designed with geometric patterns that really stood out to me. Overall a very peaceful and quiet walk with the background noise of bargaining from the vendors.
