Coffee in Aruba
How are you doing? Greetings from a warm and sunny place! I’m actually in Aruba. And let me tell you, if you forget your memory stick card reader in order to import photos from your digital camera into your antiquated Sony Vaio laptop, and you’re running on some rickety barely-better-than dial-up-kind-of-DSL-lines, blogging can be a real beast. (Insert many other words that start with B, too.) So let’s just get to the pics, what do you say? But before I do, many, many thanks to Heather for her Guest Post. If anyone missed it, check it out. We’re a couple of Crows.
My day started off perfectly. I went for a quick couple mile run, did a little bit of yoga, and it was time to run some errands. But first, I had to snap a couple pics of Skylar.
She was so happy she was dancing! With some St. Patrick’s Day Parade Beads that have gone from San Diego to Phoenix to Aruba. And we haven’t lost them yet.
Then I went in search of coffee. Ohhh, cool, an coffee bar called Espresso. Guess what, they open at 7PM. Makes perfect sense.
So the search for coffee continued. I found this little kiosk. Cool until I realized that their to-go-cup was the size of a Dixie Cup.
That was a no go. Skylar’s expression here summed up my feelings about the coffee search:
But then, I found this quaint little cafe. Perfect.
Until I paid for the coffee. $6 Dollars. Six American Dollars for 1 styrofoam cup of coffee. “But we use really good beans” the barista said. I’m thinking, I can buy a half pound of really good beans for 6 bucks, but addicts don’t complain. They just pay up.
Addicts just get in our cars and get ready for our errands and the rest of the day.
So off I went to the supermarket. And see utter mayhem. Grocery stores are closed on the weekends here so Monday morning at the Grocery store is like Friday afternoon at the bank with everyone cashing their paychecks: Pandemonium!
Good thing I ran right into this Moet display. Gosh how I adore Rose Champagne.
But since I was still nursing my coffee, I passed on the champagne.
But what I overpaid for in coffee, I made up for in bowls. 50 cents each! That’s right 2 porcelain bowls for a buck. Love it.
Will be perfect to eat my Hugh Jass’es in
Yoga Today is Janu Shirsana A (Head to Knee Forward Bend). When you’re doing this pose, you should have a very slight twisting of your core to be over your extended leg.

My Bora Bora Foods Give Away!!!
What have you overpaid for lately but at the time you’re like, I really don’t care, I just have to have it, now! In addtion to the coffee, I’ve had to pay up for a card reader and memory stick because I forgot half my set-up at home. That’s what Red Eye’s will do for ya! What have you overpaid for?
