***Volcanos and mountains in all directions with
beautiful sunrises (rarely am I awake for these) and sunsets
***Clothes hanging out to dry . . . which I've been surprisingly amazed by the number of men out hanging up and collecting the laundry!!!
***Neighbors cooking over open flames on their rooftops
***Neighbors taking baths on their rooftops =(
***Homeless men who are drunk or high trying to get dressed in the streets =(
***People using a pay phone . . . remember those ;)
***Kids playing soccer in the streets
***The start/finish line of a 10K race
***Awesome displays of lightening as storm clouds roll in
***The vultures flying over the garbage dump
My neighborhood - still trying to grasp that! I live here. This is my home now. These are my neighbors and this is my neighborhood. I love the rooftop and I'm so thankful that I have access to one!!! Although as I look out over the neighborhood it is often with great tension that I do so. I love the beauty that I see, but I hate the signs of poverty and despair. Thankful that I can trust the promise from the Lord that He gives hope to the hopeless!!!!
