Flower streets

It is a little housing tract, cute but working class, from the late 50's where all the streets are named after flowers: Aster, Begonia, Camellia, Daisy, etc. It was nice in 93 when I moved in; maybe 1/2 white 1/2 mexican but now all the white people have moved up and it is primarily hispanic. Which is fine but I have NO ONE to talk to because no one speaks English! I worked on my spanish for awhile but it was not going anywhere. Most of the women come from very traditional rural areas; they wear long skirts, bare feet, don't drive and buy vegetables off the truck that comes through every week
