Last month’s ” Pico Union Tour” was the first of a series of monthly walking tours we started doing here at Slangauge.  The concept behind this was to learn more of the facts and history about the city we grew up in. The days of stereotypical foreign ” tourists” are over! we as native Angelinos should be the first to know everything about our beautiful city. Unless you are a historian or history buff the average person might not necessary be aware of some of the history that surrounds us.  This past Sunday we did our Boyle Heights walking tour. We not only chose historical landmarks to explain but also added many other fun and interesting stops typical tours might not include.  Analilia Jimenez and myself were the guides for this tour it  consisted of 25 stops or mentions each with history and commentary. Karla Diaz and Erick Huerta also gave us stories and insider perspectives on certain locations.
