Why I (sometimes) Love Richmond
Ok, so according to CityRating.com, Richmond has 4.79 times the national average for homicide. That's not good. It's really not good, and I don't especially like that about Richmond. But you know what Richmond (San Pablo) has? TAMALES that come to your door! I spent $3 for 3 wonderful, delivered-to-my-doorstep tamales today. I lived in North Berkeley for 8 years and no one ever came by selling tamales. (Ok, so I didn't have my ladder stolen out of the backyard, either... but let's not quibble.) You could also buy oranges or strawberries or corn (with cheese, lime and chile- yum!) from the mobile micro-enterprises of Richmond.
