Re: Local Flavor: Pearl Brewery Farmers Market, San Antonio

GarryRF ·
I'm so tempted to buy the wonderful foods I see in street markets. But being a tourist with nowhere to store and cook I regret I must pass. Much of the fruit and veg I have never seen before and I'm eager to try. Which is true I suppose for most folks in England. If we don't recognise a sweet potato - then we don't buy it. I do miss the vanilla flavoured Apples ( Custard Apples ) I had in Australia.

I love being out of doors, including some time roughing it. But I also love showers, a nice meal and a comfortable bed. Glad to know there's adventuresome folks out there!

The second photo is really scary to me. I hope Cuba is not hit by a big earthquake before they reinforce their buildings.

Yes, Rob, that bottom image is scary because you just know a strong wind will knock those homes down. Poor people using what they can find to create a shelter and home. Part of the triumph of a half century of Castro rule.

Actually, that collapsed group (Sandy damage, I believe) is not endangering the rest. No one's living in that; it appears to be in the process of being scavenged for materials.

Looks like a great day out for all the family. My kids and grandkids love being hands on with creatures. Interaction with young people builds a foundation for their life. Growing up without fears.

Assuming these ponies are well cared for, as most animal owners do for their animals, the children of Vienna are being denied an important experience. The opportunity to interact with and enjoy a large animal and ride on it. Where else will kids living in a large city go for such an experience? I recall with great fondness and excitement my first pony rides at the fair and am tired of a shrill minority dictating its will to the rest of us.
