This is a mural in front of the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Services in Oakland, CA. When I captured this image, I thought the place was a medical clinic, but I found out that it’s actually a school teaching ancient form of Asian medicine like accupuncture, etc.

For today the lett is O. Three Os describe Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California and these are: opulent, ornate and ostentatious. See for yourself.
Since the beginning of joining this meme until now and for the foreseeable weeks of Monday Mural, I’d be sharing with you photos that I took before I even knew of the existence of this meme.
This one for instance was shot 2/13/10 while running errands. We were driving along San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley when at a stop light I spotted the side wall of Mi Tierra Foods decorated with this mural. I took a shot because, well, it looked pretty from where I was sitting. I only glanced at it while on a stop light.
While preparing to share this I googled if there is some information available on this mural. Turns out there is. This mural is called LIVING WITHOUT BORDERS (Vivir Sin Fronteras). 18′ x 58′ acrylic mural on stucco.

I am really bad with flower names. So I’m just going to keep sharing them. If you know what they’re called, please feel free to educate me. Thanks.
All shots from Costa Rica.
