Picture of the Week

Week 18: doggies, boobs, shadows and fish

Filed under: — Administrator @ 20:00

Most weeks I show the images in more or less chronological order. However, sometimes I try to arrange them more thematically, as is the case this week. The first 8 pictures are from Saturday morning, when we went to the Mercado Central to buy some fresh fish and other good food.

Main
Outside the market, we saw this lovely scene. The puppy is one month old:

Alternate 1
Before we go inside the market building, we usually have a coffee outside first, and look around for interesting scenes:

Alternate 7
Before we went to the market, we stopped by a wine shop to do some essential shopping there. They also have a good beer selection, and my daughter pointed out the Duff beer, which I did not think actually existed:

The rest of this week’s pictures are just around my house and one from the office.

When I walk my dog, I sometimes run into the Argentine girl (on the left). We chat while our dogs play:

My dog knows how to open doors. If my wife has forgotten to lock the gate, this is the sight that greets me when I come home from work:
