25 For A Dollar


Today we were walking home from the store down Calle Portugal
when Lynn stopped by the small flower stand that sets up
there every day. All of the flowers smelled wonderful of course,
but there was a big sign posted, "25 por un dollar". 25 long
stemmed roses for 1 dollar? What's the catch? The only catch
is that they were a day old. I don't think you can get 1 long
stemmed rose in the States for $1 let alone 25 and they're in
just as good of shape as any you'd find in an average florist shop.
Ecuador is a major exporter of roses and small shops like these
are a local purveyor to those that live here. Our apartment
now smells fantasticl...thanks to cheap (in price only) roses.

What an awesome perk! Fresh flowers every few days...and so inexpensive (notice I didn't say cheap, Tom). I would love to have that here.....
