New mission for the time I have left: spend more time in La Latina. This quirky, international barrio has so much to offer and I feel very ashamed that I’ve obliviously favored so many other neighborhoods throughout the last two years. It’s vibrant and lively and it’s brimming with interesting architecture and typically Spanish streets. You’ll find a melting pot of cultures and dishes and plenty of foreign men that want to coax you into their restaurants. Around every corner and blanketing every wall you’ll find its signature eccentric street art– there’s even a secret community garden full of it! I explored a small corner of this sprawling barrio this week with my camera in tow. Here’s a look at what I found!
