  • Neighborhood Urban Art Walking Experience: Introductionimage of street art in San Jose

    Jasper and I usually take the same route or same couple of routes when we do a normal neighborhood walk. The routes always go by one of the many neighborhood parks in San Jose, which offers a chance for Jasper the Puggle to do his business and for me to get rid of the business before we head out on the road again. We like to do 2 miles in about 45 minutes each day, with about 5 or so minutes spent at the park, just enough time for disposal and to refill on some water.
