It is a city known for art…

… just maybe not these par­tic­u­lar exam­ples. Although, I do have a lot of space on the ter­race.
They really are more cosmopolitan in the big city.

Alter­nate titles con­sid­ered: “Tongue-tied with awe­some­ness” (yel­low one with 3 tongues) “Pure awe­some­ness” “Ever had one of those days” (for the green, goo­gly-eyed one) Some­thing to do with the injus­tice of Marie Curie’s head end­ing up on a float Although they are all true in their own way, I couldn’t find the per­fect image to rep­re­sent each, nor...
Day of the Dead - Altars

Day of the Dead — Altars

The Day of the Dead altars around town were beau­ti­ful and impres­sive in the amount of work that went into them.
