our walk to work

we walked to work today
we haven't done that in a while.
our place is 3.8 miles (according to google maps) from my office
and although the route we take is not the prettiest to walk to,
it is the fastest so that is why we always take it
we do go through echo park lake which i love so much
 here are a few of other interesting things i saw while on our way to dtla

dtla skyline from the park

an abandoned skate board 

a pretty wall 

this newish art on the wall of the bob baker theater 


we passed the vista hermosa park another of my favorites that i never go to :( 

the only flowers i saw on the way 

and then we decided to get a bike to be a little faster because we didn't leave home on time 

i got a fitbit for my birthday and then surprised ryan with this gem
which i found at one of my favorite vintage/gift shops in dtla
it is a walk-a-matic pedometer it measures your walked miles!  

after we left the bikes ryan went to his office, i still had a few blocks 

made it safe and sound! it was a gloomy day (still had some sunshine and got hot at times)
but it was perfect weather for a walk to work!

take me out to the ballgame *stress free*

i really think the only reason why ryan decided to look for an apartment in echo park was because he wanted to be close to the dodger stadium... well maybe not the only reason, but i can bet anything it was a strong one.
now we don't live in echo park anymore (however we couldn't move too far from it, only a few miles away in silverlake) in any case we are still very close to the stadium and we do go a few games each season. i am not a baseball fan, even though i grew up watching it. the mexico part where i am from does not do soccer, i know shocking. to be honest i am not fan of any sport, but i do enjoy going to the games, i like to drink the super expensive beer, people watch and have a crappy but delicious veggie dog.
if you have been to a dodger game (or live in the area for that matter) you know how bad traffic gets. sunset gets crazy and just going up the now called vin scully ave. is a nightmare. driving your car to a game is a no no and not only getting there is the p…

i know the name of this blog makes reference to walking in los angeles it even has la la on its name, but sometimes we walk in other places, so i thought i'd share our experience of walking in the deep south.
when i was 17 years old i moved to gautier ms and lived there for a year as an exchange student. i was a senior in a small catholic school in pascagoula and it was that year when i met my now husband. i've been back many times ever since i was 17 but now that i am married to somebody from there i go every 2 years (sometimes more, every 2 years is not enough!) for the holidays.
i always tell the story of how when i used to talk to my mom over the phone she would say "well you can just walk there" and i would laugh and then explain to her that there were no sidewalks. i think the cities there still have a long way to go (in terms of urban planning) you definitely cannot survive without a car there, transit is almost non existent and until this day not every neighb…

we go places

we usually try to stay in our triangle area. we like to go places between home and our work offices (home being silverlake, work being DTLA)
the reason i prefer to stay close to the neighborhoods we work and live is because los angeles is a very sprawling city and with that comes traffic... so yes it's hard to visit all and try to keep yourself sane. so i rather not push myself too much. however once in awhile we do venture a little further.
a few weekends ago we went to north hollywood. our beautiful friend Hillary was having her short film premiered at the california women's festival. we were so excited for her and we couldn't miss it.
so of course we rode the bus to our nearest red line station and took the train all the way there. we hopped off one stop before to go to this restaurant i have been dying to try and then took a bus to north hollywood to watch the show. on our way back the whole party (Hillary, her fiance and all her friends) took the red line to 7th stati…
