Who’s excited about Turkey week? Not me. I only eat chicken. Fancy chicken, from Weruva. Not your regular cat food. No, only the finest minced chicken. Do I finish my bowl every time? Absolutely not, we don’t want the humans to think I eat whenever they wants. Their house, my rules.
“Can I please take a picture of you?” I couldn’t help asking after Pepe kindly wrote down directions to all the souvenir shops we wanted to visit. He reminded us of familiar faces in corner shops back home, eager to help and guide. Pepe’s ceramic shop is an explosion of colours that make you a bit jittery, for the fear of accidentally knocking down any of the wonderfully crafted pieces. Colours that give you a sugar high. Colours that you would want to capture in minuscule time machines and hide in your pockets to look at on dull days. “I look good in black and white’. Said Pepe.
