Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA
..let me introduce you to our neighborhood.
Silver Lake is a residential and commercial neigbhorhood in the central region of Los Angeles, California built around a city reservoir which gives the district its name.
(it is beautiful running, walking or biking around the reservoir - or relaxing in the park)
The "Silver" in Silver Lake is not because of the water's color, but named for the local engineer who built the reservoir. It's known for its restaurants and club, and many notable people have made their homes there.
Friday night: strolling through the Echo Park farmers market..
(from 3pm on)
Saturday morning, the sun is shining and we are riding our bikes down to the Silver Lake farmers market (from 9am till 3pm). We like to have breakfast at the Mornings Nights cafe, it is located right in the middle of the market stands. They serve delicious coffee and every 8th drink you get for free :)
There is a public piano in front of the cafe and always someone is playing it..
There's a flea market in right next to the market, it takes place every second Saturday of the month.
