As of late I've noticed a woman seated on a low wall half a block away from the colosseum who sells these handmade animal figures that are made of palm tree leaves. So far her orgami-like collection consists of frogs, scorpions, birds, and turtles.

I'm not sure how many times I walked past her until I made the decision to stop. I chose a bird. A small crowd materialized at the moment of this transaction.

During the walk to the line B metro, people kept looking at the clear plastic bag as if I were walking past with a bag of gold fish.


  1. I think so too:) She's getting a little dry -- But she's still hanging in the living room. :)
