Botanicas are sort of spiritual convenience stores. They sell candles, beneficial herbs, sacred items, and services ... like fortune-telling and rituals.

El Mercardito in East LA is part swap meet, part food court. And it's where you can find authentic Mexican treats. Queena Kim went for a tour with a group of foodies a few Sundays ago.

Hello! This is Off-Ramp's first fundraiser. There's no better time, if you like our show, to endorse it with a contribution. It's important to Queena and me, to Off-Ramp, and to KPCC. Thanks for listening, and we hope, giving during the fall drive.
Off-Ramp is a lively weekly look at Southern California through the eyes and ears of radio veteran John Rabe. News, arts, home, life... covering everything that makes life here exciting, enjoyable, and interesting.
