A day on Prado…day 100
As some of you may know by now, one of my favorite things to do is go to the market, and today I decided to take Lina with me, and Goose decided to join me…and let me drive!
Since it was a sunny day and I figured we’d walk around Prado a bit, I dressed as comfy as I could, wrapped a scarf around as a sling, put Lina in the scarf and headed out. When we got to the market, Goose wanted to check out the entire place before buying anything at the usual stand in case he found something he liked more. Unfortunately, most of the stands were closed, so we opted for the regular. As he was ordering the fruit and veggies—which they hand pick for you according to when you plan on eating it—I went over to talk to one of the florist to ask about seasons for specific flowers, care of gardenias, and work numbers for our wedding budget. We put our purchases in the car, and as I figured, we decided to walk down Prado Norte—I figured Goose would like it. And I was right! Specially when we reached the gourmet shop, La Castellana, where he finally found the spaghettini he had been looking for. I showed him around the different restaurants, cafes, art shops, and cute shops that are all over Prado Norte. We checked Mobica furniture store and fell in love with half of their inventory. Found some coasters we really liked, dining table set, lamps, place mats, bedroom set, etc. Everything was really nice. Memo to self: spend money wisely
We stopped by Starbucks to get some coffee and take a brief break. I thought it was really funny when someone asked if I was carrying a monkey. I always call Lina my little monkey, but never thought she looked anything like one—ODD. The baristas at Starbucks fell in love with and she let them pet her. After cooling down a bit, Sergio asked where Cafe O was, and went to check it out. We got in the car and headed over to Prado Sur…the fancier part of Prado, if that’s even possible LOL.
Everything was closed, except Cafe O, another little restaurant and the bakery I had been wanting to show to Goose…which now that I think about it, we didn’t check out :( We did see something that made us extremely happy—they’re building a City Market five minutes from our place!!!!!!!!
After checking out Prado Sur, we made one last stop before heading home: Gandhi book store and MixUp music and movie store. I ended up buying a cocktail book that I really liked, while Sergio checked out different cooking books.
It was a great Sunday, the three of us out enjoying the neighborhood…it painted quite a pretty picture of what our future can be like :)
