Nice to have a few days at home

After keep­ing my fridge most­ly emp­ty for the past month while I have been trav­el­ing every few days, it is nice to be able to go to the local mar­ket to restock. The scene can get a bit wild on the week­ends, and I final­ly had the courage to sneak a bunch of pho­tos with my iPod. Now if...
