I had just shown a home in Maple-Ash Neighborhood, the historic down town Tempe neighborhood, which is a walking distance to the Tempe Campus of Arizona State University. I decided to continue enjoying the warm weather and to walk to campus.
I often put the phrase "walk to campus" as an important and attractive feature on the properties I sell or rent in Tempe - it often translates to added convenience of not having to drive and park, and also saving on parking permits of about $780 per school year.
So, experiencing the walk, which I advertise, was an added luxury of the morning - what new things would I see on campus?!
Here is a photo story of my walk:
I crossed Mill Ave. at 10th Street and was able to finally take a photo of those mysterious cars with the circling cameras on top.
Walking along 10th Street past the ASU Art Museum , I paused to take a photo the round Music Building in the distance - it does look like a giant Saguaro cactus plant. Some of the exhibitions seemed interesting, so I decided on my way back, I will stop by.
I passed by two groups practicing Tai-Chi with a master teacher who seemed so soft and smooth in his movements, a pleasure to watch.
I arrived at the Crêpe Club - ah, well - it was closed on Saturdays and Sundays, I can come back on a week day, maybe. I looked at some of the invitations for participation in Entrepreurship Events that were on display in front of the Engineering Building, and started my trip back.
I came back home with lots of photos. What do you think of the resemblance between the exteriors of this building and the plant close to it?
The ribs create a little bit of shade, don't they?
Yes, I did spend most of my time at the ASU Art Museum.
Living and working in Tempe's down town area is exciting, enjoyable and energizing. What does walking down town mean to you?
I love to show and sell homes in this neighborhood.
