Welocome to Mariposa Ave.

Everyday I ride my bicycle to work and I have to take Mariposa Ave at certain point. Almost everyday I encounter this little boy with a huge helmet way bigger than his head trying to challenge me. He is actually very fast and I feel uncomfortable having to face that kid. We race for just a brief time but it is always a very intense moment!

It's probably mariposa :)
