I actually picked up on this via Sha in L.A. five minutes before I did off Franklin Ave, but L.A. is turning 225 this year! And, as blog comment superstar councilman Eric Garcetti was superquick to inform us, there’s going to be a party. A party where things will be very historical, at that, because people will be walking from the San Gabriel Mission to where the City was founded – which, I’m assuming, is by Olvera Street. That makes it a total of ten miles, a good morning’s walk. Since I love exploring the city outside of a car, I’m totally in!
EDIT: As one of the commenters reminded me, I totally forgot to add the date/time on the original post. It’s Monday, September 4th, 2006, at 6am, at the Mission.
