Hoofing It, Richmond
We walked a little bit around the downtown and then we took longer walk along one of the most beautiful American boulevards - Monument Avenue. Walking is the best and only way to feel the atmosphere of old Richmond, not mention that it was great occasion to talk more with Nat.
The streets in dowtown formed checkered pattern and those going north-south were numbered in typical American way. Keep in mind that north of Main Street they are marked by N. (North) and south of by S. Numbers of blocks were marked on street signs like on my picture.
