I ventured down a little after lunch to visit a friend. I sat on the stoop and drank beer. Usually that would seem odd, but in this neighborhood – not so much. We took a walk, visited some vendors, saw some beautiful houses, met some interesting people, ate some great food, and bought some interesting knick-knacks.
After a few hours, we needed to rest our feet, drink a little, and then out again to the beer garden to see the fire dancers.
