HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY
Some unrelated pictures I've taken recently. Went to La Antigua by us the other morning for breakfast. My Cold Cappuccino. YUMMY.Our geraniums are blooming like crazy.
Such a happy looking flower.
This is looking towards the ocean. The fog rolled in suddenly one afternoon. All the buildings between the street out front and the ocean just disappeared! Weird looking.
Then it was gone as suddenly as it appeared.
Just a short video of Gilberto painting. He makes it look so easy.
Here is a drone video of a sunset a few days ago. If you click here you can watch it n full screen. It is one of the less colorful ones we've had lately.
Ah Ha! painting the lines in the street.
He is laying out the straight line...
A cruise ship was in town so lots of vendors out on the Malecon.
Look at all the high rises. Popping up all over. Changing the looks of the city.
Walking along the Malecon
Wonder what he is surveying?
The Carnaval gates are up.
After we went through the gates on our way to Centro we got a rude awakening. The city is preparing for Carnaval so they are putting up a lot of gates across the streets. We usually take the green road. Or one of the back ones. All were shut down so we ended up taking the LONG way around.
So saw some different things. Need to find this again to get a better picture of it. Lots of stuff on it.
When walking you have to watch out for the wires sticking out of the walls.
At the parking lot. Kitty found a warm place to sleep.
The colors just caught my eye. A few of the restaurants in the Plazuela Machado are open because of cruise ship in.
Interest group of tourists.
ARRGGGGGGGGGGGGG! Lots of detail on his face.
My lunch - argentine empanadas and chimichurri sauce. Ate at Gaia.
Bills chicken Caesar salad
The pirate's feet. Looks like he had a pedicure.
Back in the parking lot. Always laundry drying in this window.
You can get your car washed while you shop. They do a very good job.
And a whole lot of more vendors on the streets. Does any one buy this stuff?
Very old roofs.
Interesting car we passed. The shapes change color as you go by them. I like that.
Back on the Malecon. Tearing down another building to put in another high rise.
Another old restaurant that has been empty and falling apart for at least 15 year that we know of. It is a big lot. So much change going on here and so many new buildings and shopping and office malls going up every where.
