The village within the village
I had a little extra time on my hands today so I explored some new territories, one of which was this amazing shopping village in Allen that really makes the village concept work. In fact, from some of the elevated views I had, the place (as well as the temperatures) resembled a small town in upstate New York. The village featured the greatest grocery store I have ever seen -- a Central Market without the elitism. I spent a lot of time cruising the aisles and met a young man, Jeremy, who promised me something his counterpart at Central Market couldn't: that he could get my Cruzcampo beer, the best beer I have ever tasted. In Spain, it is the king of beers. Exploring new territories is good.
