SeattlePi: Ramblin’ Man – Full-time RV Life – Olivera Street

From the bloggers at Ramblin’ Man – Full-Time RV Life.

Last Saturday I did something that I have not done in about 40 years. I went to downtown Los Angeles. I went to visit the area called El Pueblo de Los Angeles. This is near the site of early Los Angeles where 44 settlers of Native American, African and European heritage journeyed more than 1,000 miles across the desert from present-day northwest Mexico and established a farming community in September, 1781. I had not been to this area of Los Angeles before.

Today Olivera Street it is only about 500 feet long and offers merchandise typical of old Mexico and authentic cuisine. Personally, I would have enjoyed the street more is the vendors were not there. In my opinion they block the view to appreciate what the street really must have looked like.
