Theme Photo: City Exchange

The roof of this shopping center reminds us of buildings in Asia.

This is taken in Monterey Park where there is such a huge population of Asians, that during the 2000 census, Monterey Park and a bunch of neighboring cities around Monterey Park had Asians as the majority population group.

Monterey Park, by the way, is still part of the Los Angeles metropolitan; hence technically still LA!

Beautiful roof and it looks familiar.

My Theme Day portrait is of the "Peashooter" and the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Hope you like flying.

Damn, now I'm in the mood for some dim sum.

Technically...you are right. When I visit LA, I have to look for signs to know when I have left one area and entered another.
