Makes a change from beer 🙂 My quarterly trek up to Nervión to see my accountant has its compensations. It means I get to try new bars there or, in this case, visit an old favourite. Update on the fabulous Raíces coming soon…
So there I was this afternoon, just hanging around after lunch and wondering what to do next, after having spent the entire morning in front of the computer… and then I picked up my phone to check on Instagram and BAM! I saw that it was 27 DEGREES outside!!! It sure didn’t feel that warm inside. So it was time to dust off the ol’ sandals and take them out for a stroll.
I must’ve known this was about to happen soon, because on Monday I found a new nail colour for this year, and this morning I decided to try it out. Thus, I was all set to just slip on the sandals today. We went out in search of azahar, but so far it seems there is still none to be found in the city centre. Instead we ended up having a beer with our friend Juan at La Azotea (AKA The Office) before heading home again. So this is it. It will be difficult to get those happy toes back into shoes if the weather cools off again. But it’s actually looking pretty good for the time being. Happy me with happy toes.
On the way home from a doctor’s appointment today the skies suddenly opened up and began chucking it down. Luckily we were next to La Doma Nervión when this happened, so we scooted inside to take shelter from the storm and Sergio was quick to pour us a couple of restorative manzanillas.
Neither the photos taken nor the video below show just how hard the rain was pelting down, which it did non-stop for over two hours. This left us no option but to stay and have a nice relaxed lunch at La Doma while watching people hurrying by outside who’d been caught out and were soaked to their skin. It was the first rain since May, but even now just an hour or so later, the sun is out again and the ten-day forecast calls for nothing but sunshine and temps between 26-33ºC. Weird weather.
