VILLA FROM THE PAST


 Once upon a time, this charming little villa was once a pearl for someone. Its name is Villa Maca (MAH-tsa), which means 'kitty'.  I actually thought it had been torn down, but today I realized I had been looking for it on an adjacent street. I have a feeling though, given the renovation in this neighborhood, that the bulldozers are not far away.
