I took these pictures over a month ago but forgot to post them. Sorry about that.
Anyway, sometime in July the powers that be decided to re-brick all the sidewalks in the vicinity of the Embassy. Maybe they're doing it all around the city, but as I only walk about a three-mile radius from home, I couldn't really tell you.
So, the new sidewalks that have finally been completed look great. But unfortunately, this improvement has rendered the sidewalks still-in-progress impassable for the last six weeks. So we end up having to push our strollers into oncoming traffic.
At this rate, by the time the sidewalks are completed, it will be winter and the snow and ice will have started to tear them up.
