How would you explain ‘Londres’ and ‘Allende’ ? Her (Frida Kahlo) house was down four streets and over one, on Londres at the corner of Allende. How would you explain ‘Londres’ and ‘Allende’ ? Are they th names of two streets? PS:The story took place in Mexico City Thanks!

Yes,they are two steets. Londres: It´s London in Spanish Ignacio Allende was a captain of the Spanish Army in Mexico who came to sympathize with the Mexican independence movement. Londres esquina Allende, it´s the address of "La casa Azul" (The blue House). This building was the birthplace of Kahlo and is also the home where she grew up, lived with her husband Diego Rivera for a number of years, and eventually died, in one of the rooms on the upper floor. In 1958, Diego Rivera donated the home and its contents in order to turn it into a museum in Frida's honor.

你好 ! Yes, in the sentence, both names are streets names. "Londres" like the capital of UK, and "Allende", I think because one of the presidents of Chile : Salvador Allende. 你有问题吗? 可能我可以帮你。 再见 Sofía.
