I hadn't been to Barrio Logan in a long time and it is an hour from here but I finally made time yesterday morning.
There are some very interesting sightlines.
I also shot a couple of interesting characters, like this man. Love his hat!
The construction of Interstate-5 in the 1960s bifurcated Logan Heights and displaced residents. It was one in a long series of injustices and insults to the predominantly Latino community that had been battling an influx of junkyards setting up shop next to homes because of the area’s zoning laws.Then the building of the San Diego Coronado Bay Bridge displaced more families and below left massive concrete pillars. Residents urged the city to build a community park – and the city promised to do so.
I wouldn't hold your breath.
*Todo pa' la cruda.
I think it loosely translates as something for your head after the hangover.
I had thought about the Salvadoran restaurant nearby but this place had both white and green posole and I have not had the green in a long time.
Chip ordered the shrimp.
Cecilia and I had some mandarin drinks.
I know that I am prone to hyperbole but I think I can safely say that you can not find Mexican food of this quality in our area outside of Barrio Logan.
They have set a high bar, at places like this and Cuatro Milpas. I would return in a heartbeat.
Her mother and compatriots were shocked. Their eyes were wide open.
You see, we were then told that the young girl does not speak.
I asked if she was on the spectrum, the mother's english was not very good but she shook her head in the affirmative.
She does not talk to anyone but her mother, never to strangers or anybody else.
But she couldn't stop smiling and talking to me and even said goodby when they left.
Tapped on my back throughout the meal.
Made me feel wonderful, best part of the day.
I made a new friend.

I want to go back again on a sunny day, get some more shots, explore the community and eat some more food. Was a very nice Sunday.
