Learn something new every day

I've been visiting San Francisco my whole life and just learned about Balmy Alley in the Mission Disrict last Friday. The alley is covered in murals, which were started in the 1980s as a way for artists to express their outrage at human rights and political abuses in Central America. Now topics also include Hurricane Katrina, gentrification and more. I took the pictures below; you can see more at the official site here.


  1. These pictures are amazing! I really want to visit there and see those murals.

  2. Thanks, I went there on Friday because of this post. The whole district was really amazing.
