Very Urban




I really like flowers and the beach and things like that....


so I live in Manhattan where there are yellow cabs


and pink buses (well, this tourist one anyway)


and super large Chevvy's


and so on and so on. I don't own a car.


Sometimes it's fun just to enjoy the overwhelmingness of it all.


the tackiness


and the muddle


not to mention the beer  trucks


and the Chelsea Hotel 


with it's lovely iron balconies.


There are flags on 7th Avenue


and on 8th a building almost like a castle.

Oh dear, I see you're getting the same kind of horrid spam as me.
Lovely post, great pics, and made me laugh :)

It is particularly helpful as you fight off this yeast infection in mouth.
Because of its anti-fungal properties, it is also sometimes recommended
for vaginal yeast infections. If you apply
Aloe Vera gel on the affected areas it can help reduce the itching and burning caused by the infection.
