This past Saturday did a field trip to the south side of the city to do some shopping. We needed to stop by a sports store and we want to check out Ikea.
So after a 10 minutes walk to the metro station, an hour on the metro (including one transfer), a expensive lesson on how to buy our metro tickets next time, and another 10 minute walk we were here:
(I do not mean the American fast food restaurant sign, those are everywhere.)
I have now been in Spain so long I have actually had the thought recently "why is the woman talking funny?" when a woman addressed her kids in English on the street as I passed.
Now I was looking at the kind of suburban sprawl you can see anywhere in the US! When my husband (who lived in the US for about a decade) and I saw this sight we literally stopped in our tracks. So weird! Like taking the Metro back to the USA! Then we turned around and saw the restaurant pictured below it called "Buffalo Grill".
My husband is from Barcelona, there is no room for urban sprawl there, this took him by surprise too.
For today's crafty note:
Fall seems to be finally here and well I enjoy the fresh air my kitties get cold.
Want a quick kitty cosy? Simply take that crochet purse you made that felted into a funny shape, cut along the seam lines, and wrap it around your cat. TA-DA! Now you are officially the crazy woman that has crocheted a cat cozy. ;)
