I followed the tram track toward downtown, but didn't trek too far, the wind was getting the best of me. I reached the street which had an open market. So many locals making their purchases for the day. The block looked like a bombed wasteland and the crowds of people making the best of their situation.
Vendors called out what they were selling in hopes a shopper will stop by and purchase their produce or fresh meats or fish.
I saw another vendor selling what I thought looked like hard shelled nuts, as I bent over for a closer look, I saw movement... whatever it was, poked its 'nose' from its ringlet, circular sluggish form whilst others squirmed among themselves... ugh.. don't think I'm hungry...
Oh, you're probably wondering about my title... yes, when I returned from my walk, snowflakes fell from the sky. Only snowed for a couple hours in the morning... tis now afternoon, and the sun has returned but the brisk cold stayed.
Tomorrow I do plan a trip into downtown close to the school Future 3, as office is referred, also near soon-to-becoming my apartment, and I want to purchase my rice/steamer among other essentials for the flat then leave items at the school so I don't have to haul back to SA's flat..
Can't wait to move in...
