>zurich street parade
so far this is the only photo (of many) that i can find that was snapped of julia and i at the zurich street parade yesterday (we asked that pirate-lady to join us . . . yarrrr).
i look like a douchebag.
original photo can be found here.
i’m in florence now. out of my hostel window i look through immense jamun trees, large low villas shrouded with magenta bougainvillea, yellow stucco buildings, smooth hedges, closed gates, sentries in sentry boxes, and parakeets in flamboyant trees……terra cotta jars brandish fresh herbs, old men in wool caps pause along the cobblestoned piazzas to buy ciagars and wine grapes, pigeons scatter at the slightest noise, felafel huts and trattorias and gardens. cut melons and mangos . . . the cathedrals ring out the hours and the gelato flows like waterfalls.
the italian fuck me with their eyes and i have to shut out their pollution just to remember where i am.
no rest for the wicked.
