Olvera Street, Union Station and visiting friends.

2-14-10
Olvera Street is the oldest street in Los Angeles and Avila Adobe is the oldest house.













In front of the church were ladies selling flowers and candles for the church service. People were standing outside the door because there was no more room inside the church. Some people were praying outside along the wall of the church.












I took Doreen for Valentine Day to Olvera Street for a Mexican lunch. One gets the feeling to be in Mexico.













We took a short walk to the Union Station. This is a large railroad station. Trains are still leaving and arriving there. The ceiling of the waiting room is very beautiful.














In the afternoon we visited our former landlady in Los Alamitos. We loved it there. We became friends with Elisabeth and stayed in touch.
From there we visited Bobbie, a lady Doreen befriended while we lived in Los Alamitos.
The display in our front window gets bigger.
