Hollyhock Stop: Santa Fe Style IV

July 6th, 2014, 4pm

Our little casita on Otero is just fifty meters up from the very busy, very narrow Paseo de Peralta. We STOP at this intersection a few times a day. The hollyhocks call attention to the sign, so I think they probably save lives. The sign is there. One can easily discern the octagonal shape and the red background. Not many words start with ST and end with P. I suspect most cars linger just a few seconds longer than they might otherwise. Santa Fe calls itself ‘the city different.’ Vive la différence.

Adrian, Christine, Ken and Shu said thanks.
