- I got cussed out by a 3 year old and a 5 year old.
- I witnessed two octogenarians load/unload gas dryers from a pickup truck. Their compensation-- selling the old gas dryer for scrap.
- Mexican immigrants picking on Guatemalan immigrants. They paid Guatemalan ladies $60 a day for housekeeping work. They work 12 hour days.
- Six people living in a small one-bedroom unit. A washer and dryer were offered by the landlord but turned down because there was not enough room inside the apartment.
- A park was closed (with fences) because there was so much violence and drug activity.

I just had a trippy, eye-opening day yesterday. My friend owns/manages duplexes and fourplexes all over Oakland and I tagged along with him.
