Travel Channel Wannabe

I've learned something about myself today.
Most of the things I enjoyed most
about my recent trip abroad
involved food.

Eating great local food.
Eating gourmet chocolates.
Eating chocolate croissants from a street bakery.
Drinking latte from a park vendor.
Eating in the evening on the cornishe with the sun setting behind us.
Eating shwarma from a street vendor.
Eating in a swanky French restaurant.
Eating in a pizzaria with Silent Night playing in the background.

One thing I really enjoyed
was shopping with Kellie in her
local grocery store....

just look at it!

I'd say that over half of the people in this store
were men.


These are spices, people!

Can't you just smell the smells???

More spices, 
nuts and 
more nuts!

These are olives.

tubs and tubs of 

And the produce! 

I took some pictures of produce
in some of the small neighborhood  stalls

dozens and dozens of beautiful 
fruits and vegetables
that I could not identify.

These pictures are lost
in cyberspace forever,
but next time I visit this beautiful place,
I will visit the markets
and take many pictures
of fruit and vegetables.

That's just how I roll.

Anthony Bourdaine,
you have met your match.

Bring it.


  1. That looks like such a fabulous place to shop! You go girl!!

  2. Wow, no wonder you enjoyed this place. Don't think I've ever been in a place that looks like this.


"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
