Olvera Street

It is the oldest part of downtown Los Angeles and a California State historic landmark.

A tourist destination filled with colorful piñatas.

Strolling mariachi bands.

Sugary Mexican candies and churros and chicken in mole sauce and chilled margaritas.

Huarachas in every size.

Red-tiled roofs and flowering bougainvillea.

It has not changed since I was a kid.

My favorites are still sold in the busy stall-lined street ---- leather sandals, rolled taquitos in green sauce and jaunty donkey piñatas.
