BAPS Hindu Temple Tour –  On Wednesday, October 18, 2017, the Chino Hills 55+ Club and friends took a tour of the temple.  We were able to view a ceremonial service and a tour guide explained some of the beautiful marble carvings inside the temple.  We were told the priest gave us a special blessing and a prayer.  He thanked us for the good things we are doing for the community.   The visitor center and exhibits were closed because preparations were taking place for their Diwali celebration that started the next day.  We ate lunch at the Shayona Vegetarian Cafe after the tour.  We plan to return to the temple soon to continue the tour of the exhibits.

Olvera Street
845 Alameda Street, Los Angeles
Olvera Street, known as “the birthplace of Los Angeles,” is a Mexican Marketplace that recreates a romantic “Old Los Angeles” with a block-long narrow, tree-shaded, brick-lined market with old structures, painted stalls, street vendors, cafes, restaurants and gift shops. Olvera Street was created in 1930 “to preserve and present the customs and trades of early California.” Many of the merchants on Olvera Street today are descended from the original vendors.
