Kim and I, continuing with his vacation, ate breakfast out this morning at the Capri restaurant. Where, my son assured us, we could eat for $5 apiece. Pretty close; the bill was $14. Then Kim and I went to the Saturday market, which Kim never sees because he works every Saturday. We enjoyed walking around and looking; stopping only for $1 cups of decent coffee (that's one thing the Capri DIDN'T have), and doing some people watching. We agreed that the main differences between this market and the ones we visited in France were - size (the ones in France were HUGE), and price - the market in Boise, sad to say, is more of a "yuppie" market - everything is "specialty" and thus overpriced. The markets in France were so common and the items were all priced so "normal" people could shop without feeling overwhelmed. Still, we enjoyed perusing the market, and pretending we were in France again.
It's been a good day. We came home and watered the garden, I made bruschetta for dinner and we're watching the BSU/Wyoming game. (Go BSU!!!)
