toldos 2023 (2)

First time ever (in my thirty years here) that I’ve seen the street awnings up so early. First spotted mid-April and now the city is pretty much covered. Don’t get me wrong, I love them and think they should always go up this time of year but they usually start some time in June, and there was that one year it was put off until late July (way too late). The reason for being so efficient this year? I dunno… could it have anything to do with the elections at the end of May and an extremely ambitious mayor? Don’t you hate it when politicians treat you like you’re too stupid to see through their ruses? Would love to be proved wrong next mid-April…
