I got up early Saturday morning, borrowed a hotel umbrella, and walked over to President Wilson Market.The vendors and customers were exchanging New Year’s greetings (“Bonne Année!”), and people appeared to be in good spirits despite the misty rain. It felt like everyone was happy to be back. I know I was!
Let’s begin with a few shades of pink, shall we?
This fancy Vespa was parked near the market.
These heads of cabbage were gigantic!
The scallops always look so fancy in their beautiful shells.
It all looked so good- I wished for my little red shopping cart more than once.
It’s nice to revisit familiar scenes here, but always a little bittersweet that I am now just an observer. But I am not complaining! I loved my life here and I am excited about returning to my life in Texas in a few weeks. In the meantime, observing is not half bad, n’est-ce pas?
