SOFT AND GREEN
San Diego is one of America's great cities and true to California, it is expansive spreading almost from the Mexican border north and inland. Its suburbs are forever growing as well.
But San Diego is also city of many neighborhoods, like little towns or villages.
Each district shares California's most nearly tropical climate.
We are partial to the area around Bankers Hill and Hillcrest,
the home area of our friend and gracious host.
This is a wonderful neighborhood for walking, which we always do when visiting.
It is only blocks from Balboa Park one of America's great urban offerings.
Museums, gardens, restaurants and plenty of gentle and vibrant green space fill Balboa Park. It is not surprising then to find this signature memory of what took place across the planet in Cairo in the last days.
Graffiti is rare in Balboa Park, and soon this will be white washed over on the
bridge over the 163 freeway, but for the time it remains
it too is a gentle bloom of sorts, a reminder of the hopes that
have flowered in Egypt.
