Last week, we invited my language instructor (Tatiana) and Bernhard to join us on the Balcony Cafe for guacamole…though we couldn’t find proper chips. We added cheese, crackers, and nuts to the mix just in case the dip was too spicy. Such fun to laugh with these two! Characters, for sure!
Earlier I had caught Jim as he swept the balcony in preparation for hors d’oeuvres at the cafe.
Friday was a particularly eventful afternoon/evening.
Not only did we have guests, but we witnessed the after-effects of a 3-car accident on the street below. This particular car lost its front bumper — left in the crosswalk. The two other cars are around the corner to the right.
Across the street we snapped this photo of a photographer working with a young model in the entryway of the flats facing our building. (The man in the upstairs window is there frequently through the day — smoking a cigarette and observing all within view.)
The temperatures are continuing to fall, so I’m not sure how much longer we’ll be enjoying the Balcony Cafe. Though we hope to entertain many other friends there…this season or next spring.
(I wonder whether we could put one of those cool terra cotta fireplaces out there? Whaddaya think? Legal?)
