picture-or-video-544.jpg picture-or-video-549.jpgI took advantage of our day off yesterday. I slept in until noon, ate some great food, and bought some really cool gifts. I found a local ceramics shop and bought some great pieces. It isn’t like I don’t already confuse people when they come to my house, Oaxacan weavings next to Italian paintings and photos, next to African and Caribbean masks, now next to Turkish pottery (and a rug). I also got the best haircut of my life. There really wasn’t a lot to cut, but he spent an hour clipping away, cleaned it up with a razor, gave me a shampoo, cleaned my ears with cotton, gave me a face, back, arm, and hand massage, and even lit what looked like a mini torch and burned any hair that might have been growing on my ears. I got a little nervous when he started cracking each knuckle on purpose (my sister used to do that to me), but all that for eight euoro’s!! I finally got a chance to tell a bunch of people who I haven’t talked to in awhile what I am up to, thanks for all that responded, I am the worst at keeping in touch. I was making roasted sweet potatoes for the crew and reminded me that an ex client that used to love these. Alright Karin, now you can make these for Rob.
