Av Gaspar Sangurima

Another street, another neighborhood...  We decided to explore Av. G. Sangurima from one end to the other.  The sun was shining and we felt energized and ready for exploration!  It was a recent Saturday, not  a Sunday, but we were ready.

We started out from home, and headed up the hill, past SuperMaxi, on to Av. Lamar.  Lamar is the street with the Punto deli on the corner. Across the street,  new construction...

Had to stop and pet our favorite doggie.

Lamar is also the street that runs along the back side of La Cuadra apt buildings.  More new construction next door is progressing...

Then, we cut up a block to Sangurima, right where the street begins.  The neighborhood reminded us of the 50's, with a some older buildings thrown in.  It was quiet, not much traffic.  Of course, everything looks better in sunshine!

A park at this end of the street, with police presence.

At about Av Tarqui, the curb/divider that runs down the center of the street begins.  This is the curb that several folks we know have tripped over further up toward town. 

At this point, the street starts to get noisier, busier, with more stinky buses and more cars.  The further into town, the busier and noiser it is.  It would be more peaceful and quiet on an early Sunday morning.

More pictures of the street.

A roof garden!

Major work needed here.

Old tin pipe?

Someday we'll have to try this place.  Love the name!

Cute doggies.

Flower shop.

Our walking friends will know where we stopped for breakfast and a break...

After re-fueling and visiting with friends, we decided to not continue our walk down Sangurima.  The hot sun was out, we decided we really didn't need anything at the Rotary Market further down the street, and we headed back to the Square.

We'll walk the rest of Gaspar Sangurima another day. 

Here's a fun t-shirt for sale in a window across the street from CA Kitchen!
