A horse's life

The street where my gym is seems to be the strategic place to park for a few horse-drawn carriages during this week of feria.

I managed to get a couple of clustering algorithms to work today. Now the big thing is to figure out why the clusters are what they are. All the examples in books are on 2 or 3 dimensions. My data has about 90 dimensions. Any kind of explanation of clusters will need to be analytical, not visual. There do seem to be some techniques out there for this purpose. I spent a lot of today reading about them.
