I’m kind of infatuated with this neighborhood. It’s the second time I’ve stayed here while visiting Alex, and it feels really good. The neighborhood is a pleasure to walk through — everyone has a beautiful garden, full of aromatic flowers.
You know, maybe just let folks believe this is a terrible city. They’d only gentrify it more if they knew the truth.
Well in my life I’ve spent a substantial amount of time in the woods, particularly around lakes in Ohio as a kid, and I’ve never seen a frog this size. It’s hard to tell the scale from the picture, but it was as big as a cornish hen you’d find in the supermarket.
