River Walk

Laura and I walked north along the river path down to the Parque De San Jeronimo. I run this path quite often, but Laura hasn't been on it to the north very far. We saw the homeless guy in his regular spot with all of his belongings. His bundle is so big, that I think he's kind of bound to that spot now, but it seems to be working for him so far:
We saw folks fishing along the river:
Finally, we made it to the end of the path and the park. Therewe saw the Huevo de Colón (again for me):
The park itself is lovely. There were a few visitors. The trees provided welcome shelter from the sun (which can be fierce here):
Laura and I pulled some bikes out of a nearby bike station to head home. Along the way, this piece caught my eye (I don't know why):
This afternoon we trekked to our usual grocery store to get food in for Sunday (when everything is closed). Recently, we've been taking a side street that parallels the busier main street to the store. I noticed this hostel for the first time:
This evening, we went across the river to check out a bookstore that carries Spanish language instructional material for English speakers:
This narrow place had 4 floors (and no elevator). The English language stuff was on the top floor (obviously):
Laura did find a couple of useful texts. Also on the way over, we saw this couple driving an unusual vehicle:
and there was also this pretty yellow trike, haha.

On the way home, we hit a gelato shop on our street. I had mint chocolate chip in a chocolate dipped cone. I'd show you a picture, but I ate it before I remembered to take a picture.
