Calle Hospicio, núm. 22

What is the appeal of this little place to me? It is what the façade has to say about the resident within. First, there is the abiding love of plants, plants that the resident himself or herself obviously attends to. This indicates a good heart. The assholes of the world may think that they love plants, but they pay somebody else to attend to their plants. Most especially, however, the ribbons on the security grill of the window indicate an intrepid, valiant attitude in the face of the vicissitudes of this life.

That device projecting from the wall above the door is a flat roof drain. You can read more here about living with those.
