Our first stop was Chinatown. I noticed Homegirl Cafe was right outside. I have heard about it on TV that it is a cafe that hires at risk and ex-gang members to give them a chance to become productive members of society. So we had to go in and have some breakfast there. It's a really nice cafe inside. They had a bunch of yummy looking desserts there too!
We got back on the Gold Line and headed for Pasedena. Let me tell you it was a nice ride, you get to see so many beautiful Craftsman and Victorian houses along the way! We got off at Memorial Park Station and walked to Old Pasedena. It was really easy. Later we stopped by Jackie's Art school, The Armory. I am glad she is taking art classes. I think she has a great gift as an artisit and I encourage her to keep learning.
After all that food we encountered this park and sat in the shade and had Girl Talk. I got to say it's great having a sister to share converstations with. We got to really just sit and talk for hours it seemed.
