Pink carpets and happy gourds

A small spring storm last night, with heavy rains and blustery skies. Today most of the chestnut and cherry blossoms are swirling and eddying on the sidewalks, blown into thick pink carpets against the curb.

On another note, I’ve found a local establishment that sells my Cruz de Malta yerba mate, for 4 euros a package. All is well in the world of exotic caffeinated beverages.
