Show Me Your Front Door, Neighborhood and Car

For today’s Show Me Your (fill-in-the-blank), I’ll be taking up three requests.

Tiffany from Incredibly Fierce, Leslie Limon from Motherhood in Mexico, and Kathryn from She Don’t Make False Claims each asked to see something, so here goes:

Tiffany asked to see the view from my front door…

Lovely view of a tiny front yard and some potholes. I will say that my window faces out onto this same view, and it's nice to hear the birds singing from that tree out front. 🙂

 Leslie Limon asked to see my neighborhood:

Here's my street...

I'm right next to a middle school, and the kids hanging out on the balconies sure do scream a lot. (This was my fiance's middle school, btw!) Man those potholes look especially nasty after a night of rain, don't they?

Some lovely grafitti (No, we don't have gangs and delincuents in my hood. It's from those lame middle schoolers... hence the crappy quality and lack of imagination.)

This just happens to be one of my fave streets in the hood because of the cute houses and pretty yards, and I usually end up walking down it at least once a day.

I found some of the elusive canteloupe bugambilias I referred to the other day in a previous post.

pretty!!

These seem to be a cross between the "neon canteloupe" bugambilias (still can't find those) and the fuschia bugambilias

This is my favorite tree in Cancun! We don't have many big trees around here (something I miss about Virginia), so this is a fun substitute.

The trunk of my fave tree

I am DYING to get into this garden. It has eluded me for 2 years now. Doesn't it look like it has amazing stuff inside?? There are huge flower trees, some cute white buildings, and huge bushes in there. Let me in!

another view... *sigh* someday it will be mine

Kathryn asked to see my car. I have no car. So what do I use? THESE!!

My taxista let me take a picture of him this morning!! Our taxis are white with green stripes down the side. They charge around 2 or 3 USD to take you anywhere downtown. ("Tips are appreciate" HAHAHA)

So there you go… that’s pretty much what I see every morning on my way to work. 🙂
