Fluffy and I enjoyed our field trip to Olvera Street so much that we decided to go again. Janet and Thea met us at the Metro station in Redondo Beach, and we rode the green, blue and red lines to get to Olvera. We went through some scary neighborhoods, but it was fun to see different parts of the city fairly up close. Olvera Street wasn't as crowded as I thought it would be. We ate at one of the little walk-in food stands. Then we went to Chinatown in search of almond cookies. We were told Chinatown was "right across the street," but I guess everyone's definition of "right across the street" is different. We never found the cookies that we wanted and ended up buying cookies and rice noodles out of desperation at a little bakery that wasn't that great.
It as a fun trip, and we're trying to think of other "field trips" we can do by Metro.
