A Walk Around the Block

We took our first stroll around the block yesterday.


Many of the sidewalks are impassable, so we had to push the stroller in the street. On Iberville I saw a renovation underway; they were sanding, with clouds of lead-based paint dust going everywhere. (I’ll be placing a call to the city’s Department of Environmental Health tomorrow morning, but who knows if it will do any good.) There are abandoned and crumbling buildings everywhere, and piles of debris make navigation a hazard.

It will certainly be a challenge, raising a child in a disaster zone.
