Afterwards, Vitaly dropped us off at the coffee shop we visited the other night. There are two small eating areas - here is one of them.
A "salat" does not have lettuce here. I had a "Chesare" salat which was chicken, cheese, and green beans.
Mark had the "Francoise" salat, I think. It was chicken, tomatoes, croutons, and mayonnaise. We split a plate of chicken with grilled vegetables. Yes, notice the green pepper and tomato sitting on the plate - they were still there when we were finished. :-) The mushrooms were very good, though. Then, we shared ice cream with bananas, dark chocolate sauce, and almonds for dessert.
We walked home after lunch, stopping at the market to buy some onions, oranges, bread, and cheese. One of the stalls is a second hand clothing store. Even on new clothes, finding a label with the size is next to impossible so I had to guess at what I purchased. But, I hope I have 2 pairs of pants, a sweater, hat, and pair of shoes for Maia. This is where the "little exaggeration" that I mentioned in the title comes in. Mark makes it sound like I have been constantly shopping. It isn't the same as at home where you can go to one store and buy every item you need. So... over the past two days, yes I have done a little shopping for Maia. And yes, she has 3 hats (I know... totally unnecessary - one would be enough), but she does not have 4 shirts and 5 pairs of pants. A girl needs a few clothes for travelling - especially since we need to be prepared for "accidents." Still need to get a pair of boots for sure and I will have to take inventory for other items.
Here are a couple of photos from town.
And I'll leave you with a few more pics of the princess. The first one was taken yesterday after court - our first "official" family photo. As you can tell, Maia is much too busy contemplating her social contacts to be bothered with looking at the camera! ;-)
