Olvera st

The day began with me waking up a few minutes before my alarm was set to go off. I was so paranoid that I wouldn’t hear the alarm that my mind automatically woke me up early. I was unsure if my sister Wendy was going to join Tony and I so I went on my way to get ready. After I was mostly ready I decided to wake Wendy up and see what she said. She seemed a little surprised at the time and rolled out of bed running off to get ready. Right at that moment the doorbell rang. Wendy and I looked at each other surprised then down at the time. It was only 9:30am! No way was Tony here already! Wendy ran into the bathroom while I went to open the front door. It turned out only to be my brother Joshua back from detention. I sighed in relief as I wasn’t really ready also.
After a bit Wendy was ready and I heard my sister Esmeralda open the door in which this time Tony did step in. The time was 10:17am and the first thing out of my mouth was “It’s not 10:30!” He smiled wrapping me up in a hug and justified his early arrival by saying “I said 10:30ish.” I pouted. He was correct.
We had planned to leave early to catch the train but got distracted by the movie “Like Water For Chocolate”. We managed to get up to the station and buy our tickets a few minutes before the train got there. GO US!!!! We joked around on the train about nothingness and everything. My stomach was hurting so much from laughing. When we finally got to the L.A Union Station we jumped off and followed the massive crown that was pushing to get out. Finally, Olvera St! As we walked up to it we passed by a small area full of tents. Some people were set up for a hunger strike in the name of immigrant rights! I applaud them! You go guys!
They were having ‘Dia De Los Muertos’ dancing exhibits and we decided to stop to watch a couple of them. There were some people dressed as skeletons doing small skits in which i didn’t understand much of it. Neither did Wendy and Tony but we laughed whenever we did catch something we understood and was meant to be funny. Tony didn’t pay attention much as he was too focused on his Shaved Icee that he had bought right before we watched the skit. It was cute watching him enjoy his Ice with a smile on his face.♥

We spent the whole time browsing through all the stores and buying nothing but candy. Tony especially! At almost every candy cart he would stop to buy candy! By the time we decided to go have lunch he had eaten part of his candy and then pulled out many more when we sat down to order. Wendy and I laughed at the sight of Tony enjoying his candy and at the sight of him pulling so much of it out of nowhere! We ate lunch at this small restaurant right on Olvera Plaza and I ordered a Strawberry Margarita in which all three of us shared it. It was sooo good! We got our food and of course Tony couldn’t finish it. After having Candy and A cup of Shaved Ice…its no reason he wasn’t very hungry. My burrito was big so that is my excuse for not finishing it. As for Wendy, her Hamburguesa was gone.She said it was delicious and her finishing it off proved it. ^_^
Wendy and I fell into a major energy deficiency and started acting like weak fools. Tony didn’t seem to mind as we set out on a quest for MR.CHURRO! We got there but then got distracted by other stuff. We walked some more and once I knew it was time to head back to the train station I asked to stop to get some Ice Cream. Wouldn’t you know it! I dropped the top off of my ice cream but caught it with my hand. I placed it back on top but had sticky mess to deal with. I didn’t mind that much cus…AT LEAST I GOT MY ICE CREAM!
Once we got to the Station we decided to see if the train was already there. It was but the doors had yet to open .So we sat down to wait and during that wait I had a bad cough attack thanks to some delicious Tamarido Candy. Luckily, I was able to make it go away.Hee! Once on the train we mostly sat in silence and listened to our Mp3 players. We got to our station and then headed home content with how our trip had gone.
