On My Street


Once a year, for about 2 weeks, My street is transformed. The canal that runs the length of our street in front of my apartment building is lined with Cherry trees, and once a year it becomes famously gorgeous. Each year it seems, more people come to enjoy. This year it was quite cold for the first week so the crowds were thin, BUT this weekend the weather got nice and everyone was out. Streets were packed. We get lots of great street vendors, and hot wine. The street is still technically open for cars but the masses really keep the cars out which I LOVE.

Anyway, this little shot is just a glimpse of last night.

One of the down sides is if I want to go out to eat and not eat vendor food I have to leave my neighborhood as all my favorite joints are packed! This must be what it is like to live in a tourist area year- I definitely don't think I would want to do it year around. But for two weeks it is kind of exciting.
