Flowers in the City

I spent a month in Argentina this summer, and one thing I will never forget is the way you could not walk a block without seeing fresh-cut flowers for sale. Roses still remind me of Buenos Aires, especially when there are all different colors mixed together.

Every day as I walked to class, I passed by this man setting up his wares.

I never bought a bouquet from him, which is something I regret. I could find it if I ever visited the city again. Maybe someday I will buy flowers from him and he will cease to be a Stranger.

It looks like such a fun job...and one that can't be outsourced or automated. (You know, I have bought flowers from a grumpy man on California Street for years, and I still consider him a've inspired me to at least learn his name :)
