I visit the Wilshire/Normandie station almost everyday.  I spend much time there but had failed to look around. It was just a place to board the Purple Line train Monday through Friday to go to work. I only just noticed the mural, it hangs on the far side of the platform, that illustrates the many different cultures that call Los Angeles home. 1

I live next to a Japanese-American church in the Oaxacan neighborhood of Koreatown. In my short walk to Wilshire/Normandie stop I see these many different customs that are unlike my own. I love to see and be a small part of what makes L.A. a beautiful city to live in. 2
