Tengo como cuarenta y tantos años aquí. Me dedico a vender mis nopalitos para acabalar la renta porque no acabalo la renta para lo que recibo del seguro. 925 para la renta y recibo 826.
Dos veces por semana [hago este trabajo]. Empiezo a las 4am y termino hasta las 3 de la tarde. Voy hasta la Olympic y la Soto a traerlos en el bus.
I've been living in this area for forty-something years. My job is to sell these "nopalitos" (cactuses) so I can make rent, because I don't make enough money with what I receive from social security. My rent's $925 and I only receive $826.
Twice a week I'm out here working. I start at 4am and end around 3pm. I go all the way down to Olympic and Soto to bring my "nopales" by bus.

Roughly 90 years later, the legacy of San Luis Obispo's Motel Inn still stands, along with part of the original building.
