An Apple in Motion.

“An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction …

… unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.”- Newton’s First Law of Motion.

 

So, this big ass apple was sitting around the house, and so was I… we both got on my bike and took a ride…

 

we rode all the way down to my meeting… apple still with me; proud of myself for not eating …

 

 

after the meeting, the apple and I wanted to enjoy the day… but our plans got delayed by a train…

 

 

…meeting out of the way! train out of the way! … finally enjoy’n a beautiful day on the Bay…

 

 

(shortly after this picture I consumed the apple).

 

The end.

Where to Eat? Where to Eat? … Dónde Comer?

 

On an unseasonably warm January day in East Oakland, my sister and I  chose the Fruitvale neighborhood of East Oakland to play host to our impromptu scavenger hunt: we were hungry, and looking for a cheap meal.

The neighborhood is home to a number of new restaurants, small shops, and street side food vendors. The population is majority Hispanic; the Hispanic influence in the area shows not only through the people themselves,but also through the art ….

As my sister and I appreciated the aesthetic of the art, the foot mission was waring on our stomachs; in turn we began to investigate the food options in the area… that is: the food options that were within our budget…

We passed up the burrito truck with the steak and cheese fries, although an Oakland staple- the six-dollar meal was out of our price range.

We also passed this place on East 14th… something about the weaponry made me a little uncomfortable…

And then we saw the sign…

 

La Placita 3451 International Blvd Oakland, Ca just opened last week, and their dollar tacos are awesome…

After that meal, we needed a good desert to wash that down… options?

We passed it up to go to take the healthy route… we walked to the fruit stand….

…Of course the watermelon and pineapple was covered in salt, pepper, and lemon juice…. as my sister calls it: “the works!”

As we finished our mission, and fruit all at once, we noticed yet another mural….
