A whim well-executed

Thursday, here I come

Last week I threw caution to the wind and flew up to Istanbul for an all-nighter. Ben l’Oncle Soul does not often play small rooms, so I had to take advantage of the fact that he was at Babylon. Wonderful venue, wonderful music, wonderful night.

If this seems like a blatant ad for Krispy Kreme, so be it. I was disappointed not to find any branches in Minnesota… luckily Krispy Kreme is alive and well in Istanbul.

A touch of winter

Blown away

It snowed overnight, but it was so windy that by the time I woke up in the morning, most of it had blown down to the ground.
