Scenes from the Hood

Garlic Lady has to be my favorite vendor. She is sassy and has hit me every day for being gone for two years. She tells me I have to come by and say "hello" five times each morning, so I do what she tells me.

The Castle gate, for Katherine:

And Laughing Grandpa, Henry's father, or father-in-law...I'll never know which. The happiest baby in the world - the one he played with constantly for two years, is now the happiest four-year-old in the world.

Candle Lady and Rice Cake Lady. Yesterday Rice Cake Lady delivered cakes to my hotel. The guy there translated a conversation between us - so cool.
