Here’s another shot from Kensington Market, taken during the last Pedestrian Sunday of the season. Often you’ll find a band playing on this grocer’s rooftop. If you’ve ever been to Kensington, you’ll appreciate how this just fits right in.
So I’m off to look at a new car (new to me, anyway) that I surely can’t afford. My truck’s pretty much on its last legs and I don’t want to wait until it breaks down totally and I have no option than to buy the first thing I can get my hands on. Currently I’m driving a 2003 Ford Explorer. It’s been a pretty good ride for me but it’s time for something newer and more reliable. I’m looking at a 2014 Mazda CX5 crossover SUV. It’s a demo with 21k on it but it has everything I’m looking for in a new vehicle. Very likely I won’t buy this one but at least I’ll get in a test drive. I’m not in too much of a hurry so unless they make me a terrific deal I won’t get it. If anyone has any experience with the current crop of Mazdas (like reliability, issues, etc…) feel free to offer your opinion. I know the older Mazdas used to have paint and rust issues, but that was long ago and I’m hoping they’ve resolved those problems.
