Update on the new mall
A couple of days ago, I wrote about the new mall opening up this month, and the derelict buildings facing it across a very narrow street.
Tomorrow is the Grand Opening for the mall, and I was near there today. How I wish I had had my camera so I could show you what they have done! Imagine a giant window-shade covering the entire facade of each decrepit building. The "shade" is painted/decorated to look like the kind of old building it covers, only nicely renovated and painted. It's like a stage back-drop or Hollywood prop. Very, very funny.
