So….I’ve got a few days free. Yippee. The question is, what to do with the free time, there is SO much to see and I feel like I don’t want to miss any of it because who knows when I’ll be back.
First place………..San Cristobal, otra Vez. The pueblo in the moutains at 7000 feet, offers cooler days and down right cold nights. It feels soo good. I never thought I’d say that, I really don’t like the feeling of being cold and I’m happy that I’ve missed winter in the states. On the flip side…..to have to put on pants and a sweatshirt every once in awhile…… is soooo nice. San Cristobal is a great place to read a book and sip on hot coffee and people watch.
I hung out with a fellow from Italy who owned a bookstore. I think he was obsessive compulsive and every 10 min or so would rearrange his books. Can you imagine? Owning a bookstore and being obsessive compulsive? I think it would drive you mad….customers are always coming through moving things, this way and that. He may have been a little mad in fact. He had a wonderful loft space up above where he did all the administration for his bookstore and he could look down on his customers. The lighting was really good up there and each wall was covered by book shelves stocked full of books. It was a great space. In the picture below, a couple gentlemen enjoying breakfast at 7am.
